CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Is Hugo the Hornet coming back to Charlotte?

Someone within the NBA or the New Orleans Hornets organization is indicating it could happen.

The New Orleans Hornets, who are about to become the New Orleans Pelicans, created a farewell video for Hugo, the team's mascot from its inception in Charlotte in 1988.

The video shows Hugo looking through a photo album of his time in New Orleans with the song 'Home' playing the background.

The interesting part, is at the end of the song the team tells fans to go to their Facebook page "What's next for Hugo"?

So, what is next for Hugo?

There has been a lot of talk about the Bobcats bringing the Hornets team name back to the Queen City, but there hasn't been any decision made by the Michael Jordan or team brass.

A grassroots effort called “Bring Back the Buzz” has lobbied for a name change from Bobcats to Hornets for over a year.  

There are several comments from Bobcats' fans on the Facebook page saying Hugo should return to Charlotte.

Will it happen?
