The new jerseys have a raised Nike swoosh, which will be on retail versions. The release also added that the other two jerseys, which reflect the National Basketball Association athletes mindset and the teams communities, respectively, "will be revealed in the coming months".
We'll have to wait to see what designs come for each team, but across the league there are some sweeping changes to the uniforms that will be available for selection.
The NBA is also eliminating its "Home" and "Road" uniform designations.
Nike is taking over for Adidas as the NBA's uniform supplier next season and the company gave fans their first look at the new threads Tuesday. Instead, home teams will pick which uniform they want to wear and the visiting team will select a contrasting uniform from its assortment. You've got your home uniform, your away uniform, your alternate uniforms, your throwback uniform, and probably seven other uniforms. Nike says this uniform set "celebrates some of the most iconic uniforms in league history", which just sounds like jargon-speak for "throwbacks". The former will be the traditional home white uniform while the latter will focus on each team's primary color. The uniforms incorporate recycled polyester, and each uses approximately 20 recycled bottles.
As they've done for college uniforms, Nike will also unveil a collection of tights and socks that players will be able to wear in tandem with the uniforms. Those are the new names for what were home and road jerseys, respectively.
As part of that eight-year deal, Nike was able to secure the ability to have its logo on all the jerseys. The uniforms were designed with body and heat mapping technologies, and they were made with player input; these uniforms were tested by the 2016 USA Olympic Team that won gold at Rio.
