NBA: Phoenix Suns Unveil New Uniforms For 2013-14

Aug 16 2013, 1:39am CDT | by

The Phoenix Suns unveiled their new uniforms on Thursday at a local fashion show.

The Phoenix Suns will be sporting new uniforms in the 2013-14 NBA season. 

AZCentral.com's Megan Finnerty reports the new uniforms represent a collaboration among the Suns, Adidas and Phoenix-based Fisher Design. The unveiling took place on Thursday evening at Scottsdale Fashion Square. 

Eric Bledsoe, Caron Butler, Archie Goodwin, Alex Len and P.J. Tucker were the players tapped to model the new uniforms. 

The Suns changed their look for the fourth time in their 45-year team history. In Finnerty's words, the new look goes "with their revamped roster and refreshed set of logos, this time with aesthetic choices highlighting the team's uptempo style of play, their historically bold color palette and the sun image and its associations." 

According to Phoenix's ABC 15, this new design was dubbed as "Speed of Light." The uniforms feature "speed" lines that run across the players' chests. Additionally, they also have a ClimaCool system that provides ventilation.

It doesn't stop there. The team will begin wearing Friday home-game orange uniforms with sleeves in January, per Finnerty. 

Suns president Jason Rowley said the team wanted a fusion between the past and the present.  

"We wanted to update the look, modernize the look, but also tie it back to the past and the legacy of the team. We've got a lot of good, young players who are going to be the future of this team. It's a new era and no better way to launch a new era than with new jerseys."

The new uniforms represent just part of the changes the Suns underwent over the summer. The other ones being the hirings of new general manager Ryan McDonough and new coach Jeff Hornacek plus key player acquisitions. These include those of Bledsoe and Butler from the Los Angeles Clippers on July 10 as well as Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee in a trade with the Indiana Pacers for Luis Scola.
