New Hornets owner Tom Benson is revamping the team's front office with partners from other business endeavors, reports Mike Triplett of the Times-Picayune.
Benson, 85, who also owns the New Orleans Saints, is expected to make assistants Dennis Lauscha and Mickey Loomis prominent voices in the Hornets organization. He did give specific details of their roles or those of other executives that will be involved, because he has yet to assume ownership of the team officially.
Benson bought the Hornets from the NBA in April. The league previously assumed control of the franchise from cash-strapped owner George Shinn in 2010.
