Detroit Pistons unveil updated logo

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Pistons have unveiled an updated logo in advance of their move downtown next season.

The team says the logo is the result of a six-month process by the Pistons' creative team in collaboration with the NBA and Nike. It's similar to a logo the team used from 1979-96 , with the team's name written on a red basketball background with a blue ring surrounding the ball.

In recent seasons, the font used for the team name in the logo was larger.

The Pistons begin playing in a new downtown arena in 2017-18. The venue will also house the Detroit Red Wings.
