The new Timberwolves logo is officially here and it will be ready for the 2017-2018 season as announced by the Wolves on Tuesday.

We got an early glimpse of the logo earlier in the day when it appeared to be leaked by the Minnesota Star-Tribune. The artwork ran as an advertisement on the newspaper’s website and was discovered on the Reddit r/timberwolves page.
Minnesota’s artwork overhaul strays from the traditional timber wolf logo of past years and adds a green hue to the color scheme.
It is a spin on the newer logo that the team had implemented in recent seasons.
The ad reads “New Era, New Look,” a tagline likely attributable to Minnesota’s youth movement in trading for Andrew Wiggins and drafting Zach LaVine and Karl-Anthony Towns.
The Wolves’ logo is also eerily similar to SB Nation’s own Timberwolves blog.
We’re big fans of the new look @timberwolves

We see you, Minnesota. Or, maybe, you see us. It also looks a bit like the the Arizona Coyotes logo.
Either way, we’re big supporters of the new logo. Go Wolves!
