The current ‘Wolves branding is a slight fixer-upper of a logo that was originally introduced in 1996. As of late, their aesthetic has gone from a nice mix of green and blue, to looking more and more like the Orlando Magic (especially with their two primarily used wolf-head and howling wolf logos) and in their uniforms, utilizing only black, blue and silver. The current trees look like legos, and the yellow in the eyes are garish.
The NBA has an overabundance of blue, and unique color schemes are few and far between.
With such a unique name, that suits the area so well, the Wolves owe it to themselves to have a stand-out and cohesive brand.

I used their "wolf howling in the basketball" mark as inspiration for this. Rather than howling, I wanted this wolf to appear to be growling while baring his teeth. The lines on his ears and chest represent "timber".

Instead of drawing a new wolf face, I wanted to simplify and go for more of a Game of Thrones banner kind of look. The wolf has a rampant pose that is seen in heraldic symbols from the Middle Ages. The team name is so long that the secondary “Wolves” logo actually works better.
