You just know the following brands are going to sponsor somebody-

* Apple (Golden State??)

* Samsung (Knicks?)

* LG (Charlotte, NO, ATL??)

 

Also you just know that Detroit will announce they are sponsored by Ford

Apple is perhaps the last brand in the world that needs to slap a logo on a sports jersey.

Idk about Ford for the Pistons. Chevy just got named the official automotive sponsor at the new arena. I could see any of the big 3 automakers. I'd be fine with Ford or GM since they have blue logos that wouldn't be distracting on the Pistons uniforms.

 

They did announce the new practice facility will be sponsored by the Henry Ford Hospital Health system so that could be a possibility too.

Weren't the Timberwolves supposed to unveil their uniforms before the draft?

Nah, we were just guessing that it could happen so that the draft pick would be pictured with the new uniform, but I guess we were wrong! Maybe Nike has some kind of issue that we don't know about so that they can't have anything public for the NBA...I don't even know.

From their Press release when they annouced Fitbit as a jersey sponosr:

Quote

The jersey patch will be unveiled later this summer with the new uniforms.

 

What "later this summer" means? I don't know.

From what I've heard they are waiting for adidas' contract to officially run out. Apparently that isn't until summer league is being played.

We have a winner. 

 

I'm not familiar quite yet with what to expect as far as alternates are concerned with Nike, but could Phoenix wear '68 throwbacks? That'd be sweet.

Would an SI artist be worried about when the switch happens?  If they are trying to portray next year's players in NBA uniforms, seems like he'd want to show Nike.

They didn't put the 3 stripes logo on in-game uniforms though.

They don't carry Adidas logos except at the All-Star Game.

 

Edit: They also didn't put ads on in-game Adidas uniforms.

I believe as part of the apparel deal, Nike will put the swoosh on next year's unis, and it's a change from the prior standard.
