Defend the Land: Cleveland Cavs, Nike unveil new on-court threads

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Cavaliers have some new polyester threads.

The new gray uniform, unveiled Wednesday, is designed to represent the spirit of the team, the fans, and taps into the squad's slogan of "defending the land."

It's the first time in franchise history that the team will wear the color gray on the court.

The City Edition uniform joins the Association (white), Icon (wine) and Statement (black) Editions as the final installment in a collection of four new Nike uniforms introduced for the 2017-18 season.

The team will debut the new look on Feb. 3 against the Houston Rockets.

The jerseys are made of polyester derived from recycled plastic water bottles.
