- Brandon Paul and Derrick White in Spurs Icon Edition
In addition to Butler, the Timberwolves added stalwarts Jeff Teague, Taj Gibson, and Jamal Crawford, to a stacked roster that still features Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. San Antonio also added some fresh faces to their lineup via the NBA Draft, with promising rookies Derrick White and Jaron Blossomgame, and from overseas in wildcards Brandon Paul and Joffrey Lauvergne.
The Spurs will be rocking new uniforms for their opening night showdown with the Timberwolves courtesy of Nike. San Antonio unveiled the white Association Edition and black Icon Edition uniforms on Friday morning with two additional variants still on the way. The sleek designs do away with the silver outline around the team name on the jersey and include the franchise’s new basketball shaped logo on the shorts.
Spurs faithful still holding out for Fiesta themed jerseys should note that one of the two remaining uniforms is touted to represent the San Antonio community, while the other will focus on the “athlete’s mindset.” A Classic Edition is also in the works for eight iconic NBA franchises, to be revealed in the fall.
