My guess is the local stations will carry it. I'll be looking for an online stream on WWL or Nola.com or one of those sites. I highly doubt FSNO will carry it. I could see the possibility of ESPN carrying part of it if they feel the rebrand is big enough news to replace Outside the Lines or whatever is on at that part in the afternoon.
That's all my guess though. I'm sure we'll hear more as the day goes on and 42 can give us more details

My hope is someone streams it.
Arena renovations on the interior mostly happen this offseason, and that the branding will be incorporated into things like signs, colors, etc.
If there is a naming rights deal (and this is the prime time to do one, prior to the All-Star break, some of that may be incorporated as well. They're not going to make the escalators look like a crawfish if it's a seafood company or something really baked in (and half-baked) like that, but they can do little removable appointments.
I'll tuck the court question away and ask if it seems like this is that mature.
