OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma City appears to be getting a new alternate jersey design.
A Twitter user and Forbes reporter Chris Crain both noticed the new jersey on an Academy Sports and Outdoors advertisement Monday.
Certainly looks like a legit leak to me at this point. My guess is this is the new Statement jersey perhaps?— OKC ⚡️ Tracker (@OKCTracker) June 24, 2019
The Academy listing shows a 9/1 drop date for these jerseys, in case you were thinking about trying to buy one.
Based on all the rumors so far, here's what the Thunder's 2019-20 jersey lineup could look like. City Edition and Earned Edition still to come. pic.twitter.com/HCnL04ELd6— OKC ⚡️ Tracker (@OKCTracker) June 25, 2019
Reports suggest the design, for now, isn't expected to be a full-on rebrand. The Oklahoman confirmed an original report by Chris Creamer cited that these are the Thunder's new "Statement" uniforms; the previous ones were blue.
