Get ready for a new look and logo from the Timberwolves next season.

The Wolves announced Tuesday that a new logo will be unveiled during halftime of their April 11 game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. It's the final home game of the season and every fan in attendance will get a t-shirt featuring the new look.

In addition to a new logo, the Wolves will introduce new uniforms and court designs in the coming months.

The logo is "part of turning the page to usher in a new era of Timberwolves basketball," said Wolves CEO Ethan Casson.

In 2015, Zach Lowe, then with Grantland, ranked the Wolves logo 27th out of 30 NBA teams.

"There is just too much going on here for a team that already has to fit 21 letters into this mark — too many trees, too many colors, and too much dramatic shading on the wolf’s face. The Clips and Pacers got away with not including their full city/state in their primary marks, and the Wolves should push to join them upon their inevitable redesign."

Clearly, change has been needed for quite some time, and these upgrades (hopefully) coincide with major renovations to Target Center.
