The Detroit Pistons today unveiled their Classic Edition uniforms for the 2022-23 season. NBAa replica of the road uniforms worn by the Pistons between 1996 and 2001.

“To Pistons fans everywhere: We hear you and this is for you,” said Mike Zavodsky, chief commercial officer for the Detroit Pistons. “The teal jerseys represent a ‘colorful’ era in Pistons basketball and NBA history. We’re thrilled to re-introduce teal to a new generation of basketball fans, and we can’t wait to see this version of Detroit Basketball on them.”

History with the Classic Edition

The teal jersey represents its own unique era in Detroit Pistons history. The team secured postseason berths on three separate occasions, with franchise standouts such as Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, Lindsey Hunter and Ben Wallace donning the teal horsehead threads.

The uniform itself is a direct replica of the original: black, yellow, and red trim on a teal jersey that features the famous flaming horse head. United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), the Pistons’ official jersey patch and exclusive mortgage partner, is featured on the front left strap of the jersey. The team is expected to wear the teal jerseys in approximately 10 games over the next season as part of its 2022-23 uniform rotation.

The Pistons officially unveiled the jerseys Monday night at a launch party at the Renaissance Center. Jerry Stackhouse, who began his time with the Pistons organization in the teal jersey, was on site to show off the Classic Edition uniform.

The Classic Edition teal jersey will be available for purchase in the weeks leading up to the 2022-23 NBA season. Today, fans can sign up for pre-order alerts to give them an exclusive window to pre-purchase once it’s available. As the jerseys officially become available for purchase, the Pistons and DoorDash will partner to create a limited exclusive item with a teal theme for select fans.
