Pacers to Test Short-Sleeve adidas Jersey at 2013 Summer League

The Pacers will sport a new look in their summer league games, which begin on Sunday in Orlando. They will experiment with adidas’ adizero short sleeve NBA Uniform System.

The Pacers will test adidas' short-sleve jersey during summer league play.Instead of the usual reversible practice jerseys with their names added to the back, the Pacers will be wearing white and black short-sleeve jerseys. Navy blue wasn’t available when teams were required to order.

Last season, the Golden State Warriors were the first NBA team to wear the short-sleeve jerseys and the reviews were positive. Adidas says the uniforms are 26 percent lighter, are made from 60 percent recycled materials, and do not restrict range of motion.

Adidas has made an effort to get more teams to wear the new style. ESPN reported on June 19 that up to five new teams will wear the short-sleeve jerseys for as many as a dozen games next season. The Pacers are not expected to be one of them.

The Pacers are once again playing in the Orlando Summer League, held at the Amway Center from July 7-12. Each of the ten teams will play five games over six days.

Pacers.com will be on site in Orlando to provide comprehensive coverage.
