The uniforms are navy blue and red with “Motor City” across the chest and were designed to celebrate the pride and character of Detroit which the city is known for across the world because of their automotive beginnings.
“We are pleased to unveil our new Motor City uniforms and display our pride in the metro Detroit community,” said Dennis Mannion, CEO of the Detroit Pistons. “When you say Motor City — no matter where you are in the world — everyone knows you are talking about Detroit. We are proud to represent Detroit and hope these uniforms will serve as a source of pride for our fans and this region.”
The club’s secondary logo appears on the shorts — similar to the primary home and away uniforms. The team is making some big moves during the offseason with free agency and these uniforms can do nothing but spark the new surge of what they are trying to accomplish in the Eastern Conference; you know how the saying goes, “if you look good you will do good.”
Jerseys will be available at all Pistons retail locations in November.
