Based off of Nerlens’ suit jacket sneak-peek from last night’s lottery, and his mention of stars down the sides, could this be what the new Sixers home uniforms will look like? Graphic designer and uni-fan Conrad Burry, who discovered the new Sixers wordmarks, mocked these up using all the info we have so far, and they look pretty damn good. You figure there’s gotta be some red in there somewhere, so the trim is a nice touch, but the side panels could even be white, trimmed in, with red or blue stars. We won’t know for a few more weeks, but the clues are at least giving us some idea. Burry’s mock ups for the away and alternate unis are after the jump.
UPDATE: No idea if this is true, but as part of my (Kyle) pledge to post all unsubstantiated tips from now on, one reader – whose name checks out on a LinkedIn search – checks in with the following:
Those renderings that guy created are close to accurate except the siding of the uniforms are going to be blue not red. Accurate portrayal of the stars though.
Tony Chennault was actually one of the people modeling the jersey in the photo shoot. As a Nova guy I thought you’d get a kick out of that.
Other renderings after the jump.
Based upon Nerlens Noel's suit + his comment about stars on the sides, maybe the new Sixers unis look like this? pic.twitter.com/SxPfg4yWB6
