The Toronto Raptors revealed four new uniforms for the upcoming season on Monday night.
The share the same basic design and come in four different color schemes. The Raptors will continue to wear white at home and red on the road but the team also unveiled two black alternates—one with red trim and one with gold trim.
The gold-trimmed jersey was revealed by Raptors ambassador Drake at a performance on Monday night. Drake wore a No. 6 Cory Joseph jersey on stage at OVO Fest in Toronto.
Joseph, a Toronto native who wore No. 5 during his four seasons with the San Antonio Spurs, will switch to No. 6 this year as a reference to Drake’s nickname for Toronto, “The Six.”
Other features of the uniforms include new letter and number fonts, as well as a maple leaf on the waistband of the shorts.
