I'd be perfectly fine with a touch up of this, with green and the roundel. 

 

Any word on time of the reveal?

 

The mock ups are using the current secondary as it is close to the new logo. New logo will be revealed at halftime of tonight's game vs OKC.

The primary logo doesn't need to include a basketball so long as one of the logos in the set does. And it doesn't even have to be obvious that it's a basketball, it just has to be a suggestion of one, like in Milwaukee's primary or Atlanta's tertiary logos:

Why not just use that alternate and add some script below?

Just one of the logos has to have a basketball in it. Doesn't have to be primary.

Would've preferred a little touching up to the current secondary, but that's pretty good all things considered. Excited to see the full set.

I don't like the font. And the fur shapes are a bit too flowing IMO. Seems similar to the Grizzlies. Lateral move from these images.

 

Here is a story about the designer:

This wolf looks more like the original wolf, all grown up. Blue with the grey/white undertones, even with the green eyes.

The current wolf looks to be all grey.

Pros: double blue tones, green accents (plural), minimal gray

 

Cons: awkward fur curves, too much blank space where wolf and roundel intersect, meh font

 

I kinda like it, and I think it'll grow on me....all things considered, I was prepared for something much worse. I'll reserve final judgment until I see what they do with the rest of their branding and uniforms.

Are we still doing the double blue thing In 2017? Hopefully the uniforms will only have one shade of blue. 

Guessing they'll have the lighter shade of blue for the trees on the sides of the new jerseys.

Could use some trees in there.

 

Here's a rough and sloppy:

They could've used more elements from that, wonderful, current (for a few more hours) secondary.

Probably my biggest typographical pet peeve is when the capital letter A doesn't have a crossbar.

This is what I imagine had happened in that designers head: "Hmmmm, how can I make this font look custom and different?... Hey, I know! I'll remove the crossbar from the letter A, that'll be so cool."

 

Also, I'm content with that logo.

I guess I can dig it, as tigerslionspistonshabs said

More trees are nice. At first I want more green but neon green can be kinda harsh, so this is a decent balance (just needs to be actually present on the unis). Hopefully the star signifies a north star/northern lights element. All in all good looking primary, excited for the rest of the set.

Love the inclusion of trees in the background -- tree on the wolf feels forced.

I'm thinking they'll spin it as an arrow pointing toward the north, even though it isn't exactly facing straight up.
