What We Know So Far About New 2016-17 NBA Alternate Uniforms

Written By:  •  Friday, August 19, 2016


Every season, the NBA (and Adidas) selects certain teams to add alternate uniforms to add to the respective teams’ brand, and next season is of course no different. I have obtained confirmation, via an official Adidas catalog, of the 7 teams next season that will receive the new designs*. (We have already seen the official release — full story HERE — of the Orlando Magic’s “Stars” alternate uniform)

As of right now, I have learned only the details of the uniform cut (sleeved or not sleeved) and the main design colour of each new alternate uniform. Without further ado, here is a run-down of each of the remaining new seven jerseys and the design details that we know thusfar.

The Raptors and Warriors “stretch” alternate uniforms will retain all the design details of the away uniforms of the teams, but they will have an all-new wordmark design for each. The Raptors uniform is rumoured to be a uniform celebrating the Chinese New Year.


Like stated earlier, we only know the jersey cut and colour details so far, this just gives you a general idea of what to expect for the season ahead.

*Please note that the official Adidas catalog is almost always a correct indicator of content. However, on occasion, designs have been changed, added or deleted in future revisions of the document. This information was accurate at time of publication.
