Raptors to bring back original jersey next season
Original purple jersey will return for select home games
The Toronto Raptors will celebrate their 20th anniversary in the NBA by bringing purple back — for a few games, anyway.
The team announced Thursday it will return to the original purple jersey used by the Raptors in the 1990s for select home games during the 2014-15 season.
"We are excited to bring back a piece of team history as part of our 20th anniversary celebration," said Raptors president and general manager Masai Ujiri.
"Our fans have shown affection for the original purple uniform and I think our players will enjoy the chance to wear them next season."
