Are the Pistons teasing a new alternate jersey?

The Pistons posted the photo above on their Facebook page with the message, “Hmmm … why does Moose have three #Pistons jerseys in his locker? Find out tomorrow! #MotorCity.”

So, I guess, stay tuned for tomorrow? Or we could wildly speculate:

Possible: the Pistons are getting an alternate jersey that appears to be either black or a darker blue. As Brady Fredericksen and Dan Feldman both wondered, how cool would that possible Pistons alternate be if there’s a lightning bolt on the front?

Remotely possible: Greg Monroe has earned a spot on Team USA . The color of that jersey looks strikingly similar to Team USA’s dark blue jerseys. That would definitely be great news, but the fact that the font of the number 10 appears to be the same font the Pistons use leads me to believe it’s probably not a Team USA jersey. Fingers crossed though.

Probably not possible: The Pistons picked the meanest albeit most clever way to announce a trade in NBA history.

Add your theories below.

    I think they will say Motor City on the front

    Navy blue Pistons Alternate (to finally replace the retired red alternates from a few years ago) that will say “MOTOR CITY” on the front, and will match my Detroit Tigers home gear perfectly :)
    I believe a new alternate was hinted at by Gores a while back too. Figured this was the year they’d do it, as the last couple years without an alternate could have been used to approve this new one.

    Um, it’s explicitly described as a “Pistons” jersey, so… not much room for speculation, eh?

      Doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure out.

    Could this mean new logos and a court design

    Great news! I was indifferent about the Red alternatives. I liked them at times but there were also times that I couldn’t stand to look at so much red. Haha. But with that aside, I have been waiting on new jerseys. I’m a person that loves change. I would be ecstatic if Gores went a step further and changed the logo and the design of the jerseys… but I’m getting ahead of myself right now.

    The Jersey itself looks Navy Blue with red lining and, like many people have suggested, the front may have something different other than “Detroit” or “Pistons”considering that the jersey isn’t facing towards the front like the other two are. 

    I like it so far even though it’s just a “teaser.” On a side note, I would like to say that I am a personal fan of teams with black jerseys. I don’t know why but having black makes you look bold and/or intimidating. I LOVE the heat’s all black Jerseys the most which says a lot because I hate the heat with a passion HAHA

    Considering they applied for approval of a third jersey for this season some time ago, I can’t wait to finally see what it looks like!!

    That would look better as the new regular jersey kinda look like team USA jerseys.

    PROBABLY NOT POSSIBLE: Since the Pistons haven’t played very well in this one-team-versus-another format, they are starting a new league where three teams play against each other on the same court. Basically, 21 for the NBA.

    The new jersey colors are great. I thought the road red was ok. However I would love to see that darker blue more than the other blue.  It speaks change. Gores is trying to create its own tradition.

    The Pistons are going to leave the NBA to join the Flint Tropics in the ABA.

  • [...] of the great Detroit Pistons-focused site PistonPowered wondered Tuesday afternoon if the team had teased a new uniform in a Facebook photo that showed three jerseys hanging in the locker of forward/center Greg Monroe [...]
