Sacramento Kings unveil new court design

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Sacramento Kings Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve seen the new logos, we’ve seen the new jerseys, and now we see the new court. The Sacramento Kings today revealed the design for the new court through their social media account.

In addition to incorporating the new logo, the Kings will also be using Sacramento elm trees for the wood under the center court logo while the rest of the court will be made up of “sustainably-harvested maple”.

The new court looks solid and simple and I like that. I thought the crowns on the previous court were a bit out of place, and this version is much cleaner, much like the new jerseys.

The Golden 1 Center will open up with the new court for the first time on October 10th, when the Kings take on Maccabi Haifa in the preseason. They’ll open up the building for the regular season home opener on October 27th against the San Antonio Spurs. I can’t wait to see the new building and court in person.
