The Minnesota Timberwolves will reportedly pay tribute to pop legend Prince with new "City Edition" uniforms, according to The Ringer. 

Featuring violet colors and edgy fonts, the jerseys appear to resemble the Minneapolis-native’s 1984 Purple Rain album and film art.

Nike’s "City Edition" uniforms pay homage to basketball teams’ cities by capturing elements unique to their areas. The Prince jersey is reportedly expected to be unveiled alongside all the new NBA City Edition uniforms in mid-November.

Billboard has reached out for confirmation.
