NEW ORLEANS -- The Pelicans revealed their new dark blue and gold uniforms at Thursday's press conference to show the public what players will be wearing for the first season.
The players walked on stage wearing their new home and road adidas jerseys that featured New Orleans on the front of them.
The NBA will not allow a Mardi Gras jersey, or any special jersey in year one of their new name.
But the team will unveil an alternate uniform in 2014-15 and a special fourth uniform in 2015-16, Pelicans official Jim Eichenhofer said.
The new jerseys are available for pre-order at Pelicans.com.
“When we announced the Pelicans as the new name for the team, we were looking forward to days like today,” said Owner Tom Benson. “We love the look of the new uniforms and are especially proud to have New Orleans across the chest of all of our players who will be representing this great city and region."
