Kings unveil purple-infused Statement uniforms for 2023-24

Kings fans wanted purple; Kings fans got purple.

Sacramento revealed its new Statement uniforms for the 2023-24 NBA season Wednesday, which incorporated the perfect blend of the franchise's past and future.

The purple and black unis have an ombré blend in the middle with a purple and black checkered detail along the side from shoulder to knee.

Checkers aren't new to Kings guard Malik Monk, who modeled the rebranded jerseys. The 25-year-old sported a similar design while playing at Kentucky (h/t CBS Sports' Cameron Salerno).

The Kings also revealed the new uniforms Wednesday morning on KCRA3-TV.

Earlier this week, the Kings introduced their new Icon and Association Edition jerseys for the upcoming season with the assistance of De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis' Emmy-worthy acting.

The new threads have both black and white versions with just a hint of purple -- one of Sacramento's official team colors -- on them. In the video, Sabonis asks Fox if there will be a purple uniform and the All-Star point guard hilariously informed him that there is a "purple shortage" due to having to fuel the iconic victory beam.

Monk was spotted rocking the new jersey while sitting courtside for Sacramento's opening summer league game Monday at Golden 1 Center.

The season still is three months away, but Kings fans have something to be excited about until then.
