The Portland Trail Blazers have had a relatively quiet offseason so far after being eliminated from the NBA Playoffs by the eventual champion Los Angeles Lakers. Here’s the news from Thursday involving the team:

Blazers confirm their new “City” jersey

After leaking on Wednesday, the Blazers have officially unveiled their new “City” jersey for the 2020-21 season. It’s the first jersey in franchise history to feature the word “Oregon” as the team moniker:

The jersey is dedicated to both the state’s unique landscape and the tribal nations who have called the area their home. A portion of jersey sales will be donated to the Native American Youth and Family Center, according to the team’s site:

Biofreeze and the Trail Blazers have teamed up to donate a portion of the net proceeds from jersey sales to the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA), a Portland-area nonprofit working to enhance the diverse strengths of native youth and families through cultural identity and education.

You can sign up for pre-sale info on the jerseys — which release on Dec. 3 — here.
