The Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday unveiled new City Edition uniforms.

The uniform pays homage to the two cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the diverse people and neighborhoods that makes the Twin Cities thrive, and the river that divides yet unites its residents, the team said. The icy blue color of the MSP uniform reflects the blue waters that are ubiquitous throughout the cities, namely the Mississippi River, which is outlined on the left side of the uniform. The river's outline begins at the collar of the uniform and flows south all the way down to the bottom of the uniform. An illustrative icon featured on the waistband of the shorts features the last city of the east, the first city of the west, connected by the mighty Mississippi River.

The team will don the uniform nine times throughout the current season with five of those games being played at Target Center. During those games at Target Center, the Timberwolves will bring in local chefs, artists, designers, entertainers, community leaders and neighborhood groups to take part in the festivities, the team said. Those games will take place on Dec. 13, Jan. 24, Feb. 21, March 6 and April 15.

In addition to the Nike City Edition uniforms, the organization paired up with clothing designers based in Minneapolis and St. Paul to create a first-of-its-kind collection of merchandise, including creations from Sota Stick, Northmade and Great Lakes Co.

The locally-made merchandise is on sale now with City Edition uniforms going on sale on Nov. 27.
