Lakers to add alternate sleeved jerseys, according to report

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Lakers have been confirmed as one of the teams adding sleeved jerseys into their rotation.

The Los Angeles Lakers will wear white, sleeved jerseys "several times" during the 2013-2014 season, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPN. The Lakers are the latest team to have confirmed short-sleeved jerseys.

Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld previously reported that at least 20 teams are expected to wear sleeved jerseys "at least once" in the upcoming season. The Phoenix Suns recently revealed their three new jerseys, featuring an alternate jersey with sleeves. At least five teams are expected to wear their sleeved alternate jersey for as many as 12 games in 2013-2014.

The Golden State Warriors were the first team to introduce the sleeved jersey look during the 2012-2013 season.

The Lakers currently have three jerseys in their rotation with home, away, and alternate jerseys for home games played on Sunday. The sleeved jersey design has not been revealed, though a replica is expected to be released "in the near future," according to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News.
