Andrew Wiggins and NBA2K may have accidentally leaked bits of the Minnesota Timberwolves’ new jerseys (this happened with their new logo in April as well), but now we’ve got a full look at what Tom Thibodeau’s squad will be wearing next season. At best, they’re boring but clean. At worst, they’re ugly.
The good news is the shorts can easily pass for a bathing suit at any of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes.

While there’s a noticeable absence of lime green, there have been rumors of an all green alternate jersey coming. Here’s a supposed 2K rendering of how those will look.
The Wolves are one of a growing number of NBA teams to put ad patches on their jerseys. They announced a three-year sponsorship deal with Fitbit in June, and you can see that patch above the left breast.
The Timberwolves are ushering in a “new era” after adding Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson to join their young core of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Vegas has Minnesota as the fifth-best team in the competitive Western Conference next season.
Opinions on the new look were…iffy.

The Wolves were not the only franchise to unveil new uniforms on Thursday. The Bucks announced a partnership with Harley-Davidson and will add the Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer’s ad patches to its jerseys this season. A more traditional look, opinions were a bit higher about this new gear.

Bucks confirmed as one of eight teams that will have a throwback uniform. Design to follow later this month. pic.twitter.com/MDKO8xWGF9

The patch looks a bit out of place with the different color scheme, but it’s still not as bad as the Nets adding bright red Infor patches to their jerseys.
