Each team will have 4 new primary uniforms.
Nike and the NBA have just unveiled the first of the league's 2017-18 uniforms. Each team will have four new primary uniforms including the "Association" and "Icon" editions which will take place of "Home" and "Away" jerseys.
According to Nike, each of the new NBA jerseys are made up of alpha yarns and recycled polyester which contains approximately 20 PET bottles each.
"Coinciding with the introduction of the new uniforms, the NBA is eliminating its “Home” and “Road” uniform designations. Beginning with the 2017-18 season, home teams will pick which of their uniforms will be worn at all home games and visiting teams will choose a contrasting uniform within their own assortment."
"Because of this change, Nike and the NBA worked together to create four core uniforms for each team, classified as “editions,” which draw from the rich heritage of the NBA and its respective franchises."
"The first two editions of the NBA uniforms, which will be introduced by teams this summer and will make their on-court debut at the start of the season, are the Association and Icon editions. The two remaining core uniforms, inspired by the mindset of the NBA athlete and the communities that support their teams through thick and thin, respectively, will be revealed in the coming months."
Additionally, eight NBA teams will have a Classic Edition uniform that will be available in the fall. The Classic Edition celebrates some of the most iconic uniforms in league history and can be worn at each team’s discretion.
