When the 2017-18 NBA season rolls around, the Portland Trail Blazers will be sporting a new look and logo
The Portland Trail Blazers have one of the more recognizable uniforms and logos in all of the NBA, but this coming season will be the last we see of what they’re currently sporting. The look of the Portland Trail Blazers will be undergoing a change.
Trail Blazers president Chris McGowan announced at the team’s media day that when the 2017-18 NBA season gets here next year, the team will have not only new uniforms they’ll be wearing on the court, but a new, updated logo as well. Now if anyone is concerned that the change will be drastic, you need not worry there, according to McGowan.

“I wouldn’t call it drastic,” McGowan said via Sporting News. ” I think we’re blessed with some of the best uniforms in professional sports, our fans really like our identity, people know it whether you live in Portland or not. So I don’t know if drastic is necessarily what we need to do, but I think you always need to modernize.”
For those that are wondering the last time the organization updated their famous pinwheel logo, that took place back in 2002. So really, when you think about the landscape of the NBA since then and how much modernizing that we’ve seen, you can say that it is indeed time for the Blazers to make a bit of an update.
Now are there any pictures of the new uniforms and logo? Unfortunately, there are not at the moment, but everyone will get to see the new update come this spring before the upcoming 2016-17 NBA season comes to a close.
This change is also in conjunction with the NBA’s move to Nike uniforms beginning next season after their relationship with Adidas ended.
