The NBA uniforms are getting a small tweak for the 2014-15 season.

The red, white, and blue logo that has been the league's distinctive emblem since 1969 is moving from the upper-left chest area of the jersey to above the player's name on the back.

The Atlanta Hawks, along with 17 other teams, currently feature their own team logo along the rear neckline and will have to make room for the NBA's symbol.

The new look was discovered as the Charlotte Hornets unveiled their new uniforms for next season.

The move raises speculation that advertising could be coming to the front of the jersey, according to ESPN.
