Atlanta Hawks Might Have New Uniforms In The Works

Atlanta Hawks might be hinting at new uniforms in the near future.

The featured picture above shows Atlanta Hawks fans wearing red shirts with a revamped “Pac-Man” logo for the Hawks.

Prior to Game 6 in the 2014 first-round playoff match-up between the Atlanta Hawks and the Indiana Pacers, the Hawks let all fans know that t-shirts featuring the “Pac-Man” logo would be given to every fan in attendance for that game.

Usually teams will introduce logos or uniform changes during the off season, so for the Hawks to introduce this updated logo during Game 6 in the first round of the playoffs is very unusual.

The old “Pac-Man” logo was used as the Hawks primary logo from 1972-1995.

Ever since the new logo was introduced during the playoffs, the Hawks have been using it as their Facebook and Twitter avatars.

Now that the NBA Draft has come and gone, we get to see NBA draft picks put on their new uniforms. The Atlanta Hawks have no pictures or images of uniforms for their new draft picks which makes me think that they could be waiting to unveil something brand new or at least a little different.

If you take a look at their website store, you will see a lot of items with the new “Pac-Man” logo on them including the 2014 draft hat.

The one picture that stood out in their store was this jersey shirt below.

On the left is last years jersey for Kyle Korver. On the right is a jersey shirt with his name and number. But, look closely and you will see that the number font is slightly different.

This could be a preview of a new jersey font that hasn’t been released yet or it could just be a shirt that has nothing to do with new uniforms.

The shirt does include a “Pac-Man” logo on it which makes me think that they brought this logo back for a reason.

Maybe it’s just for marketing. Maybe it will be featured on an alternate uniform. But, there is a reason that they revamped it and brought it back.

We will see in time if the Hawks have a new uniform(s) up their sleeve.
