DETROIT – The Detroit Pistons unveiled their Nike City Edition “Motor City” uniform that will be worn during nine game dates throughout the 2017-18 regular season.  

The uniforms will debut on Jan. 30 when the club hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers at Little Caesars Arena.

Created by Nike, in collaboration with the Detroit Pistons and the NBA, the navy blue and gray uniforms feature chrome details and sleek design lines that add a modern and clean look to the automotive-inspired jerseys and shorts.
