September 15, 2022 – The Charlotte Hornets today unveiled a new Statement Edition uniform to be worn starting with the 2022-23 NBA season, in association with Official Jersey Patch Partner LendingTree.
The Statement Edition uniform remains purple but now features a “Hornets” wordmark on the chest in white with teal trim. The numbers on the front and back of the jersey follow the same design, while the player name on the back is white with no outline. The word “Charlotte” appears on the bottom left front above the jocktag. The side panels feature a teal cell pattern that continues onto the shorts in a design inspired by a stinger. The shorts include a “C-cell” logo on the waistband and the team’s secondary logo on each leg. Both the jersey and shorts have a tone-on-tone cell pattern at the openings for the neck, arms and legs. For the 2022-23 season, the jersey also includes the No. 6 patch that will be worn on the right shoulder of all NBA uniforms in memory of Bill Russell.
Like all Hornets uniforms, the right chest of the Statement Edition jersey features the Jumpman logo of NIKE, Inc.’s Jordan Brand and the left chest sports the logo of LendingTree, now in its sixth season as the team’s Official Jersey Patch Partner.
The Hornets are scheduled to wear the Statement Edition uniform for each of their eight Saturday home games this season at Spectrum Center – including October 29 against the Golden State Warriors, December 31 against the Brooklyn Nets and January 14 against the Boston Celtics – as well as for the final weekend home game of the regular season on Sunday, April 2, against the Toronto Raptors. The uniforms will also be worn in seven road contests, for a total of 16 times.
Statement Edition jerseys are expected to be available at retail this holiday season.
