North Arizona Suns unveil new Logo
By iSportconnect | May 11, 2016
The Northern Arizona Suns launched the team’s brand identity tonight with the unveiling of the NAZ Suns logo & uniforms during a community event at the Prescott Valley Event Center. Just last month, health the Phoenix Suns purchased their NBA Development League affiliate, asthma the Bakersfield Jam, pills and moved the team to Prescott Valley, where they will begin play during the 2016-17 season.
NAZ Suns President Chris Presson was joined by Phoenix Suns alumni Tom Chambers, Steven Hunter and Tim Kempton, and broadcaster Tom Leander, to reveal the new brand. In a special nod to basketball in northern Arizona, the team’s uniforms were unveiled by two local high school basketball players, senior guard Tyler Bell of Prescott High School, and sophomore guard Tim Young of Bradshaw Mountain High School. The Suns Gorilla and Suns Dancers were also in attendance.
The Northern Arizona Suns primary logo resembles the sunburst from the Phoenix Suns original logo, a nod to the storied history of Suns basketball in the state of Arizona. The sixteen sun rays represent the year the Northern Arizona Suns were formed, 2016, and the triangle at the top of the logo represents “True North,” a reference to the proximity of Prescott Valley, and the entire northern part of our state, to Phoenix.
