The Nets have officially moved the franchise to Brooklyn after spending 35 years in New Jersey.
The Nets didn't have a whole lot of success in the Garden State. New Jersey never won an NBA Title, and had a disappointing final season, going 22-44 and missing the playoffs once again. With the move, the Nets have a completely new logo and new uniforms.
Darren Rovell of CNBC revealed Brooklyn's uniforms Monday morning. Rapper Jay-Z, who is also a minority owner of the team, created the team's new look.
Jay-Z designed the Nets jerseys to be different from any uniforms worn by the rest of the teams in the NBA. Brooklyn will be the only team in the league to wear just black and white as colors, according to Rovell. The word Brooklyn will appear on both of the team's home and away jerseys.
The Nets return to New York after spending four decades in New Jersey. In the late sixties and early seventies, the Nets played on Long Island as an ABA franchise. After the ABA-NBA merger, the Nets joined the NBA and made their home in New Jersey.
Brooklyn hopes to have a fresh start with the move. Star point guard Deron Williams will be a free agent in the summer, and the Nets hope to re-sign him. The Nets plan to compete with the Knicks as New York's most popular basketball team.
The latest Nets gear went on sale at 8 a.m. ET Monday morning. It can be purchased online at nba.com. Actual jerseys won't go on sale until September.
