Phoenix Suns unveil new uniforms in Scottsdale (VIDEO)

PHOENIX - The Phoenix Suns introduced a new look for the fourth time in franchise history.

The last time the Suns updated their look was in 2000, and as they revealed Thursday night, they'll be sporting the short sleeve look.

Eric Bledsoe, Caron Butler, Archie Goodwin, Alex Len and P.J. Tucker were on hand to strut down the catwalk at Scottsdale Fashion Square during a public runway show.

Plan on seeing the short sleeve orange uniforms during Friday night home games starting in January.

The Suns worked with Adidas to develop and design the uniforms over the past two years. The new design is deemed "Speed of Light" and integrates elements that symbolize the Suns historically fast-paced style of play. There are "speed" lines built into the design that go across the players chests.

"We wanted the uniform to reflect our rich tradition and the up-tempo style that is synonymous with Suns basketball," said Phoenix Suns president, Jason Rowley. "We feel like we have integrated those elements into a modern look and innovative design that every Suns fan can be proud of."

These uniforms feature a ClimaCool system to provide ventilation. They're made with 60 percent recycled materials and allow for natural movement.

US Airways Center also redesigned their court to incorporate the NBA team's recent changes.
