The Suns have revealed their Orange Statement for the 2019-20 season, with an all-orange uniform that will be worn during eight Friday night games. Intended to pay homage to the "Seven Seconds or Less" era, the uniforms were also inspired by the team's affectionate nickname for the home of the Suns, "Planet Orange".

The Jazz will revive the iconic purple mountain theme that the team wore from 1996-2004, which included two trips to the NBA Finals. The uniform will be complemented by a replica of the team's 90s era court.
The Classic Edition uniform will be worn for at least 11 home games and select road games this season.
The Grizzlies plan to celebrate their 25th season in the NBA with two classic designs that honor the team's early days in Vancouver and Memphis. These Classic Edition uniforms will be paired with a special hardwood court that features elements included during the early days of the franchise.

Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder announced four of their new uniforms for the 2019-20 season in July. The highlight of the bunch is the City Edition uniform, which was designed in partnership with the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. The uniform aligns with the upcoming 25th anniversary of the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers are celebrating their team's 50th anniversary this season with a new uniform and court that will throw it back to the 1970s. The uniforms are replicates of the team's iconic uniform from 1977, which features the team's signature "Blazers" font and pinstripes running down the left side of the red uniform.
The Rockets unveiled three new uniforms for the upcoming season. Their Association and Icon Edition uniforms feature a new "Rockets" font and the inclusion of black as a core color. The Classic Edition uniform is a replica of the design worn by the team when they won back-to-back championships in 1994-95.
The team will announce another new uniform in November.
The Kings will celebrate their 35th anniversary with a Classic Edition uniform that honors the design worn by the team from 1991-94.
The royal blue uniforms feature the Kings script wordmark across the chest and the team's classic logo, which was used from 1985-94, on the shorts.
