The Houston Rockets are changing up more than just the roster this offseason. They have revealed a new logo for the franchise and some brand-new jerseys will be made for the upcoming year.
The Houston Rockets are making all types of changes this summer. Besides having just about everyone on the roster available via trade, they will also be shaking up the logo and jerseys for the team next season.
They revealed their new secondary logo via Twitter yesterday in a video and photo. Be sure to check it out down below to see what it looks like:

The community, so far, has not been so kind to the brand-new logo from the Rockets. It is getting quite the response on the tweet, with most of the replies being quite negative. The general consensus is that it just looks off and pretty basic. Many people wanted to return to the roots of the Rockets and bring back the ketchup/mustard look.
Personally, I think it could be a lot better. The “R” is a bit outdated and could use a nice replacement. Ketchup and mustard were my favorite Rockets colors/jerseys, so I’d love to see those return. The new merch in the team store looks a bit awkward, too.
The Rockets also revealed that they will be bringing some new jerseys in next season to the team. There will be three new unis, a rebranding of the white and red home and away jerseys as well as a completely new one for just next season. They will be shown off on June 20, draft night.
The Rockets will unveil three new uniforms to season ticket holders in a draft-night event this month. Two bring significant changes to the red and white primary uniforms; the third is a special, one-season addition. Last season’s black uniforms will return.

It will be nice to have new jerseys for the team. The new Nike jerseys have seen some great success (red on red and the black ones) as well as some unpopular ones (the regular white/red ones). I personally really like the home whites and think they’re underrated, but it will still be great to have a new start.
The draft is only a couple of weeks away, and we’ll be covering the reveal of the jerseys more than the actual selections themselves since the Rockets have no picks.
