New Timberwolves uniforms

The Minnesota Timberwolves today introduced some of their new uniform designs, which will be worn by the team beginning with the 2017-18 season.

The two designs unveiled today are the “Association” and “Icon” jerseys. As previously announced by Nike, the NBA is eliminating its Home and Road uniform designations, and instead, home teams will pick which of their uniforms will be worn at all home games, with visiting teams choosing a contrasting uniform from their own assortment.

Two additional core uniform designs will be revealed in the coming months.

The uniform looks were created through a collaborative effort between the Timberwolves and Mississippi-based design expert Rodney Richardson of RARE Design.
