The NBA often is at the forefront of trends across professional sports, but the league isn’t too keen on a popular type of headband.
Teams around the NBA were notified Monday that the league will not allow players to wear “ninja-style headwear” during the 2019-20 season, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The NBA notified teams in May that the headbands “would not be a part of this seasons uniforms,” per Wojnarowski’s report.
Jimmy Butler, Jarrett Allen, De’Aaron Fox and Jrue Holiday were among the players who wore them last season.
