Raptors Raptors re-worked purple throw backs coming next season?

Quote:
Last month I had exclusive news on new uni designs being developed for the Nets and Hornets. The same source who provided me with that scoop recently got back in touch with more NBA news, this time regarding a bunch of new uniforms to which he’s had access.

Just like last time, it’s not clear whether these new designs are prototypes, or still in development, or what. No visuals, either — just descriptions. Here’s what my source saw:

• There was a sleeved Warriors jersey in very dark gray, with a dark gray logo on the front and yellow numbers.

• There was another sleeved Warriors jersey (Golden State is apparently trying to set some kind of record in this category), this time in black with red and gold trim, and with Chinese characters on the front where the uni number would normally be.

• There was also a Magic jersey that’s essentially the same as their current home jersey, but in gray and with sleeves.

And there was a new edition of the Raptors’ original purple uniform — a throwback for next season,perhaps..?

Paul Lukas – who broke news of the Brooklyn Nets developing a black-and-white, stars-and-stripes uniform – is back with a few more scoops.

There are no pictures, but Lukas’ source provides descriptions of:

Two new sleeved Warriors jerseys
A sleeved Magic jersey
A new version of the Raptors’ original purple uniform
2015 All-Star warmups
Possible templates for the 2015 All-Star uniforms
Put me in the no column for sleeved jerseys. I don’t find them aesthetically appealing, and I find it hard to believe they’ll sell well considering how often players complain about them.

But I love the idea of the Raptors wearing something like this again. It would probably be as an alternate jersey, considering their push toward black and gold. But a few nights a year is the perfect amount for that dribbling Tyrannosaurus Rex to grace NBA courts.

It's not a TRex dammit!

The grey Warriors uniforms sound ridiculous. They might look good but they have nothing to do with their main color scheme... Major selling out there. And even more sleeves??? Sigh...

And wtf is up with those Warriors Chinatown jerseys, just incredible.... smh....

Gone are the days when a player played his entire career in one uniform...

I actually like the red, black and white but purple does bring some uniqueness to the squad as opposed to having similar-ish colours to Portland, Chicago, Houston and Miami.

It will almost certainly have sleeves. It will probably look like those christmas jerseys, 1 color (purple) for the shirt itself, and a big logo in the front.

There was talk of sleeved "Heritage Jerseys" like the Nets one. This concept fits the bill for us.
