New Orleans won’t give up the Hornets!.

The New Orleans Hornets do plan to return to playing in New Orleans by sometime in 2007-8. They are currently in a settlement discussion with Oklahoma City over what they owe the city under the revenue agreement. The first offer was over a million dollars short according to Oklahoma’s officials but the two entities plan to work out their differences in good faith. I can’t wait for their return but appreciate the help Oklahoma has been able to give in our time of need. Hopefully the arrangement will benefit both cities and won’t prove detrimental to New Orleans chances for a full recovery of its entertainment assets following this difficult healing period.
