With the NBA 2020-21 season, all set to start from December 22, and with less than a month to go teams are unveiling the new threads they have for the season. Nike and Jordan Brand have been busy rolling out an extensive line of uniforms for the teams with most of them coming in with fresh looks. Eastern Conference sides Toronto Raptors, Charlotte Hornets, and the Atlanta Hawks will be sporting new uniforms while the other teams will deck up with new City and Throwback versions.
Here's a quick look at the team's new uniforms that have been unveiled so far. Starting off with the Eastern Conference sides.
The Hawks showcased uniforms that were designed keeping in mind the franchise’s signature colors. In addition, they also announced a partnership with the estate of civil rights icon Dr Martin Luther King Jr, the National Basketball Association (NBA), the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), along with Nike with the release of the MLK Nike City Edition uniform.
One of the most decorated teams in the NBA are sticking with the traditional Green in the uniform and have adopted their banner colors with a generous splash of white in them.
The Nets have gone for a daring look with the blue dye variant. The design is inspired by what the side wore in their 1990-91 season.
The Hornets have brought back the pinstripes. Another retro look. The side originally wore similar jerseys between 1997-2002. The team released a quick teaser that highlights the features of their new threads.

With a groovy soundtrack to boot, the Pistons look all set for their season as they launched a teaser detailing the history of their city and franchise along with the long-standing love for automobiles. The Pistons flaunted their new-look uniforms will be worn at select home games this upcoming season. Per the team, the uniform draws from symbols of the region, with a circular read of “Motor City Detroit, Michigan” across the chest.
Another team with the pinstripes this season. Their new City Edition uniforms are white as a predominant color but feature both orange pinstripes and the word “ORL” in orange along with the team's star logo.
The Sixers will be sporting a uniform with black as the primary color and will be the first time since the 2008-09 season. It will also add in shades of red, white, and blue along the edges with "Philadelphia" printed in white.
The Raptors, like the other teams, have taken a look at their past when creating their uniforms. They unveiled three of their five uniforms that borrow a few elements from the yesteryears.
Moving on the Western Conference...
The Nuggets have infused a lot of red in their latest City Edition jerseys and have swapped the black to what they describe as "flatirons red".
The Mavericks’ have swapped to a new color schematic— White and gold trims which according to the side are “a nod to one of the most iconic and powerful symbols of the City of Dallas, the legend of the Pegasus".
