What other reason did the Kings change the design? Instead of ignoring previous designs, the organization cared more about “drawing inspiration from [their] royal heritage and infusing the essence of the 1994 rebrand.”
Additionally, the 2023-24 season will be the team’s 79th season in franchise history and 40th season in Sacramento.
“The reintroduction of a modernized script wordmark, an iconic and timeless symbol intricately woven into the fabric of our franchise’s history, strengthens the bonds that bridge our proud past and thrilling future,” the Kings announced.

Furthermore, all three uniforms are now on display in the Grand Entrance of Golden 1 Center, where the California Classic summer league is being played. The Statement Edition uniforms were revealed on Wednesday, the second day of the event. Of course, the Miami Heat play the Kings at 10 p.m. ET tonight on ESPN.
“Light the Beam!” was the team’s rallying call in the 2022-23 season. The Kings finished 48-34 and third in the Western Conference standings, ending their 16-year playoff drought. After each Sacramento home win, a purple laser beam was lit in the sky outside Golden 1 Center.
Per The Sacramento Bee, the beam that emits from Golden 1 Center was made by a California-based company called Nu-Salt Laser. The multi-faceted laser light show company calls the product its “Laser Space Cannon.” Nu-Salt Laser has over 28 years of experience, according to the website.
