The Utah Jazz are slated to wear a color of jersey they’ve never worn as a primary color before in 2017-18: gold. League sources tell KSL.com that Nike, the NBA’s new jersey provider in the 2017-18 season, will provide a primarily gold-colored uniform for the Jazz. The jersey will be an alternate, not one of the Jazz’s primary jerseys, and may not debut until December. No mockup of the jersey is currently available.

If you love the Charlotte Hornets’ teal uniforms or the black “Buzz City” design, you’ll like a change in what the team wears for home games next season. As the NBA shifts from Adidas to Nike as its uniform supplier, the league is also loosening its policy on which team wears what color each game.
Nike, set to take over as the NBA’s official apparel provider this season, rolled out a first look of the new jersey on Tuesday. The company says the jersey, which is a modification of those worn at the 2016 Olympics by Team USA, is lighter than previous NBA jerseys and more flexible, better designed to move with the player.
It was widely reported that Infor, the company sponsoring the Nets jersey ad, paid more to have their red logo “pop” against the Nets black-and-white gear. It’s why the Nets got a lot more money —$8 million— than all but one team selling space on jersey. That one team was the Cavaliers, who have LeBron James. But on Tuesday morning, Darren Rovell tweets that the “pop,” the “clash” of red on black-and-white has been abandoned.
