CHANHASSEN, Minn. — The Minnesota Timberwolves are paying tribute to Prince with a purple-highlighted uniform.
The team unveiled Prince-inspired City Edition uniforms. The new look uniforms were created in collaboration between the Timberwolves, Nike and the Prince estate. Prince family members say the “Purple Rain” superstar enjoyed basketball from a young age, both as a player and fan.
The new jersey includes a paisley leaf in tribute to Prince’s Paisley Park studio, the letters “MPLS” recognizing the Minneapolis Sound and purple touches.
Minnesota will debut the new uniform on Nov. 16 when the Timberwolves play Portland.
