Timberwolves Unveil Modified Uniforms

The Minnesota Timberwolves today unveiled the newest evolution of the team's uniforms, which will debut this fall when the team tips off its 22nd season in the NBA. Minnesota's modified uniforms were developed through a collaborative effort between the team, the NBA and adidas.

The tweaked Timberwolves uniforms reflect the evolution of the Timberwolves brand into a sleeker, simpler and more mature look. The most noticeable change from the previous version is the omission of green from the color palette, as the new look features only the team's primary colors of blue, silver, black and white. The familiar tree line that had adorned the neck of the two previous jerseys has been replaced with a crisper, cleaner look and the side panels have been simplified as well. The updated jerseys will also feature an updated font for the numbering that features more traditionally-shaped numerals.

While the updated uniforms will remain the same white (home) and blue (road) colors, the team will also debut a third alternate road uniform midseason. The Wolves have been without an alternate road look since the uniforms were re-designed prior to the 2008-09 season.

Fans will have their first chance to see the updated uniforms when the Wolves open the 2010-11 season against the Sacramento Kings at Target Center on Wednesday, Oct. 27. Season tickets and partial season packages, including the team's new 20-Game Flex Pack which gives fans the ability to customize their own ticket package, are still available.
