During a photo shoot with fellow rookies, the NBA captured a couple of photos of Anunoby wearing a red Raptors jersey made by Nike that also includes their new Sun Life sponsorship patch.
The change in the jersey is because of Nike’s new clothing partnership with the NBA, replacing Adidas. Commissioner Adam Silver also announced in April that teams will be allowed to have sponsors on their jerseys starting in 2017-18.
Another NBA jersey change introduced over the summer is that teams will no longer have home and away sets. Instead, they’ll be able to alternate between four different options.
The Raptors’ other three jerseys have not yet been revealed, while their red set, aside from the new patches, doesn’t look any different from the one they sported last season as their away jersey.
