The Sacramento Kings will wear their throwback baby blue uniforms for 10 games this season, the team announced Friday. 

The franchise originally wore the uniforms from 1985–90, starting with the year the Kings moved to Sacramento. 

“The 1985–86 NBA season is one of the most memorable in Kings history,” Kings President Chris Granger said. “Bringing back the ‘baby blues’ enables the best and loudest fans in the NBA to celebrate memories of our storied franchise history. We look forward to honoring our proud past as we look forward to our proud future at Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento.”

The jerseys will be worn for nine “flashback Friday” games, as well as the last home game of the regular season. The Kings’ last home game this season will be the last in Sleep Train Arena. Sacramento moves to its new, downtown home next year.
