CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Charlotte Hornets have unveiled three new primary uniforms featuring white, purple and teal colors.

The uniforms bear a strong likeness in color scheme to the old Hornets regime but have been slightly updated.

The home white and away purple uniforms both read "Hornets" on the front, instead of "Charlotte" as in years past. The alternate teal uniform, which will be worn 16-20 times per season at both home and away games, has "Charlotte" on the front.

From 1988-2002, the team's primary uniforms all read "Charlotte."

Hornets senior vice president of marketing, entertainment and Interactive media Seth Bennett says, "In 1988, people needed to know who Charlotte was, but that's no longer the case."

The team did away with the popular teal pinstripes down the front of their home uniform.
