When the Kings moved to Sacramento in 1985, they had a much different look than the purple and black they’re known for today.

The team will pay tribute to their original color scheme in this city with a new court.

The Kings on Monday released an image of the court that will coincide with their Nike “City Edition” jerseys. The team unveiled the jerseys Wednesday in a news release. The team will wear the City Edition uniforms and feature its new court for eight home games during the 2017-18 season.

The court’s dominant color will be the baby blue with red trim that the Kings wore during their first four seasons in Sacramento after spending the previous 13 seasons in Kansas City (including splitting the first three of those in Omaha).

More information about the court, which will be the Kings’ third design this season, can be found on the team’s website.
