With this season’s WNBA Draft emanating from the Nike headquarters in New York City, it is only fitting that draft day is the day where teams begin unveiling their new and updated uniforms.
The W was included in the NBA’s new deal with Nike where it became the primary jersey/apparel provider for the league.

With this season being the maiden voyage for the WNBA’s newest franchise – the Las Vegas Aces – there was no shortage of anticipation on what its uniforms would look like. We recently saw what the court at Mandalay Bay Events Center would resemble for Aces games.

The uniforms were unveiled on KVVU-TV Fox 5 Las Vegas the day of the draft. The Aces have the top pick in that draft, which means if the mock drafts are correct, we are getting a glimpse into what uniform South Carolina’s A’ja Wilson will don as she enters the pros.

Another team that will feature an updated look is the defending champion Minnesota Lynx, who will be hosting the All-Star Game this season at a renovated Target Center, and will feature a new logo similar to that of the Timberwolves.

Needless to say, the Washington Mystics went all out in promoting its updated jersey look…
