The New Orleans Pelicans unveiled their new uniforms during a press conference Thursday afternoon.

Jrue Holiday, Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson and Jason Smith took to the stage to show those in attendance the new uniforms. The jerseys feature the team's new color scheme with the name "New Orleans" across the front.  The team will wear white at home and navy jerseys on the road.

New Orleans officially rebranded itself as the Pelicans in April, changing its name from the former Hornets moniker. The NBA won't allow the team to wear a third alternate jersey until its second season as the Pelicans.
