Despite being one of the worst teams in the NBA this past season, the Hawks are already getting ready for the future. Having a solid young core led by All-Star Trae Young, Atlanta previewed their new uniforms ahead of next season.
Torch red, legacy yellow and infinity black are the colors that characterize the new threads for the Hawks, as all of them have a 'vintage vibe'.
The league got rid of “home” and “away” jerseys since its partner with Nike back in 2017, so this gives teams' more freedom to switch up their uniforms. The white jersey is “association,” the red jersey is “icon” and the black jersey is “statement.”
The Jordan Brand logo will feature on the black “statement” jersey. The league and Jordan announced that all 30 NBA Statement Edition uniforms will now feature the Jumpman logo starting next season.

The new jerseys are pretty similar to the Hawks’ G-League affiliate, the College Park Skyhawks.
“We wanted to bring back a modern feel to a classic, iconic uniform,” Hawks’ VP of Creative Shirley Zhang said.
