Confirming our report from earlier this week, the Sacramento Kings formally revealed their Assertion Version uniforms on Wednesday afternoon, just two days after unveiling their Association and Icon sets.
The brand new Jordan Model uniform pulls inspiration from the Kings’ 1994-97 alternate design, which was half black and half purple with an arched wordmark and white checkerboard sample down the perimeters.
Relatively than cut up colours like the unique design, Sacramento opted for a gradient that goes hand in hand with the franchise lighting a purple beam into the sky above Golden 1 Middle following a victory.
The white wordmark can be arched on the Assertion uniform however consists of the total staff title within the Kings’ present font, which was launched forward of the 2016-17 season alongside a brand new brand set.
The checkerboard sample is far more refined on the Assertion uniforms, in the meantime, because it alternates between purple and black as a substitute of purple and white like the unique design.
Lastly, the brand new uniform is full with the Sacramento’s partial crown logo on the waistband and the dribbling lion logo in the checkers on the backside of the shorts. Each logos are white to match the typography.
This marks the primary replace to the Kings’ Assertion set since Nike took over the league contract in 2017-18. The earlier uniform featured a sublimated design from the city flag all through the black uniform.
