Minnesota Timberwolves Rebrand

Recommended Posts

There has been no official announcement yet, but shortly after the draft Timberwolves GM/Coach Flip Saunders commented "we need new jerseys" in an interview with Dan Barreiro on Minnesota sports radio station KFAN.

I would imagine a large majority of Timberwolves fans, and NBA fans in general, agree with Flip's statement. The current branding is too busy, not very aesthetically pleasing, and has grown stale. Given that Flip is the GM and a close friend of owner Glen Taylor, I think its say to assume new uniforms will be coming within the next few years (hopefully after the Nike takeover). As the team has completely re-vamped the roster and now has a promising young core, the timing is right.

With respect to the logo, there have been rumors recently that the team will tweak the shade of blue and move toward the a slightly modified Wolf head logo (sans trees and word mark) as its primary. That logo was placed on the team's new practice court at Mayo Clinic Square:

The (IMHO) beautiful secondary logo will apparently be reserved for the team's season ticket / VIP "Hardwood Club".

I will continue to post official and unofficial updates on this thread as the process gets underway.

I think the Wolves are a case of less is more. I love their inaugural unis. I own a blue Garnett with the green 'WOLVES' across the chest and love it.

I currently love their logos. The snarling wolf with the trees is great. The howling wolf is great.

I've sort of grown to like their new unis but they need green, even if it's minimal. They are definitely on the generic side.

With getting Andrew Wiggins and Anthony-Towns, I'd say that now is the second-best time to change (the first, of course, was about 7-8 years ago). I'd say either Kelly Green/Blue or Kelly Green/Black are both great places to start.

I actually like their current uniforms, but I understand the need for change. From seeing all the tweaks they've made to the practice courts and the alternate logo, I can assume that they will not be bringing back the green (unfortunately). I hope they don't go overboard and make it a rebrand because I think the Wolves have pretty nice logos. Hopefully, the changes are close to minimal.

I like the current shade of blue, wouldn't mind some dark green added to it. Going back to the regular blue and green would look too much like the Mavs and now Bucks. They have something unique, stick with it. I'd even tweak the jerseys before I considered a complete overhaul.

^ I like those jerseys but that wordmark and the numbers were terrible. Put the current wordmark and numbers on them and you might have something.

Although I wouldnt be completely ooposed to something that was more along the lines of their inaugural set either.

I agree i never liked the wordmarks or numbers on those uniforms. Just splice them with the current wordmarks and numbers and voila!!

I'm with you on this. I love the Wolves original unis, but it's mostly out of nostalgia. I went to a handful of games that inaugural season when they played in the Metrodome and Tony Campbell was their only real scoring threat.

Those uniforms were -- and still are -- beautiful in their simplicity. I also don't think they'd fit in today's NBA.

I'd welcome a new look for the Wolves. My preference would be to take the blue-green-black-gray set posted above by Nash61 but simplified.
