The Sacramento Kings are just a year plus removed from potentially relocating to Seattle and under new ownership, the franchise wants to move away from poor recent memories. Given that, they’ve apparently decided to unveil new uniforms for the 2014-15 season, however they might look rather familiar.

While the Sacramento Kings will remain with their current color scheme, they’ve decided to return to the script and number font worn by the franchise during their glory days in the early 2000’s.
You’ll notice the word ‘Sacramento’ has been removed from the new road uniform and the font has been replaced by the jerseys most often associated with the Chris Webber led franchise which took the Los Angeles Lakers to the brink of elimination multiple times, most famously during the 2001 Western Conference Finals.
The changes aren’t a complete overhaul and for some who don’t follow the franchise, they may notice many chances at all.
In addition to the new look, the Sacramento Kings will also wear a special Christmas Day uniform and a throwback jersey which pays homage to their time in Rochester. Along with that, the Kings will be one of many teams who will wear a gold stripe on the neck of their jersey (above the nameplate) which honors their 1951 NBA championship, even though that was won by the Royals.
