The Detroit Pistons are bringing back the teal era next season, at least on a limited basis.
The Pistons revealed the classic jerseys at a launch party Monday night at the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit. They are replicas of the original teal jerseys that the team wore on the road from 1996-2001. Longtime Pistons fans will remember that era led by Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, Lindsey Hunter, as well as the retirement of Joe Dumars in 1999.

“To Pistons fans everywhere – we heard you, and this is for you,” said Mike Zavodsky, Chief Business Officer for the Detroit Pistons, in a press release. “The teal jerseys represent a ‘colorful’ time in Pistons basketball and NBA history. We are thrilled to re-introduce the teal to a new generation of basketball fans, and can’t wait to see this version of Detroit Basketball suit up in them.”
Stackhouse was on hand at the launch party to celebrate the reveal of the Classic Edition teal jersey. They’ll be worn in approximately 10 games during the upcoming season. Fans will be able to purchase the teal jerseys in the weeks leading up to the start of the season.
