Minneapolis/St. Paul – The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the much-anticipated Nike 2021-22 NBA City Edition uniform. This year’s campaign, Remix the Game, juxtaposes old and new and is a compilation of the franchise’s greatest hits.

The Minnesota Timberwolves 2021-22 City Edition uniform blends elements from a selection of looks forever linked to three eras of Timberwolves basketball: The Expansion – the beginning, when Minnesota was granted a franchise, The Big Ticket – led by Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett, a time etched with a Western Conference Finals appearance and an MVP honor, and The Now – a young core fueled by Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell and an exciting future ahead.

The uniform celebrates Timberwolves history and gives a fresh new look to the team’s most classic and iconic uniform features.

    Uniform Color: the inaugural blue, green, and white colorway returns. The front blue nods to the color of the original 1989-96 Timberwolves jersey and utilizes the guard hair element of the inaugural Nike NBA City Edition uniform of 2017-18 while using the navy of the current Icon uniform on the back.
    Tree Trim: the iconic trees are back. Worn 1996-2000, an era that defined the franchise’s "Big Ticket" teams, the trees evoke an unmatched nostalgia among Wolves fans.
    Chest Wordmark and Number System: the chest wordmark is a remix on the 2004 logo that connects the Wolves mark on the current Nike NBA Association jersey, along with the styled treatment of the Trees jersey.
    Short Logos: the wolf adorns each side, representing team origin and how far the team has come. The team’s first logo resides on the left-side and the current logo is positioned on the right-side. Each side is equipped with guard hair patterns to capture the essence of the wolf and bring in an element of the first City Edition uniform from 2017-18.

"This year’s City Edition uniform is a celebration of fandom – a tribute to our franchise’s most iconic moments," said Timberwolves and Lynx CEO Ethan Casson. "There’s a certain amount of nostalgia with this year’s uniform and fans will notice it’s a true mixtape of past, present, and future. We can’t wait for our fans to see the uniform on-court for the first time on Friday, Nov. 5th."

Nike first introduced the City Edition concept in 2017 to celebrate and honor each NBA team’s fans and community attributes. This is the fifth Timberwolves City Edition uniform for the franchise.
