The rebuilding Bulls will have a new look when their host of young talent takes the United Center floor this fall. Their jerseys will look different, too.
The Bulls revealed their new Nike uniforms on Wednesday morning. And while the Bulls' iconic uniform design won't change much - unlike some other teams around the league - their primary home and road colors will.
The team announced on Twitter that their red "Icon" jersey will be their primary home threads.
Their "Association" jersey will be their primary road threads, although it will depend on which uniforms their home opponent chooses to wear.
Minor tweaks were made to simplify the name on the backs of the jersey. The Bulls' red Icon uniform now has white lettering, different from the old black lettering with a white outline. On the Association uniform, the lettering on the back is now black, different from the old red lettering with a black outline.
The Four Stars on the Chicago flag will also be represented on the waistband of the shorts:

It's different from years past, when the Bulls - like most of the NBA - wore traditional white uniforms at home and colored uniforms on the road.
Last season the Bulls wore their white uniforms at home 36 times (out of 41 games). They wore gray Chicago PRIDE jerseys three times, red one time and green (for St. Patrick's Day) once.
On the road the Bulls wore red uniforms 33 times, black sleeved jerseys seven times, and white one time.
Eight NBA teams will have a Classic edition jersey, which Nike said will celebrate "some of the most iconic uniforms in league history." The Bulls are rumored to be one of those eight teams.
Each team will also have two alternate jerseys, one "inspired by the athlete's mindset" and one "inspired by the community."
Nike took over for Adidas as the primary outfitter of NBA uniforms this season. The brand made significant changes to the back shoulder of the uniform, while hemlines across the jersey "were modified to allow for full range of motion." The jerseys were first tested on last summer's USA Basketball team that won gold in Rio.
Nine teams will have sponsor patches on their uniforms this season. The Bulls are not one of those teams.
