Washington Wizards Unveil New Jerseys & Color Scheme

The Washington Wizards have made their first noticeable transition under owner, Ted Leonsis. Today a new color scheme and jersey set were introduced to the public by various executives as well as former Bullets/Wizards greats, Elvin Hayes and Bob Dandridge. Also present were the two young stars of the Wizards, John Wall and Jordan Crawford, who modeled the new home and away jerseys for all to see.

The Wizards have decided to change from their previous slate blue, black, white and gold to an old school red, white and blue. This will put all three pro teams at the Verizon center with the same colors and also play into the patriotic feel of Washington DC.

Leonosis purchased the team last year and also owns the Washington Capitals and Washington Mystics (WNBA) in addition to the Verizon Center through his company, Monumental Sports & Entertainment.

This is not the first big change for the Washington Wizards franchise. From 1974-1997, they were known as the Washington Bullets but decided to change the name. This came as a result of public pressure due to the violence associated with the team name, "Bullets", in addition to high crime and homicide rates in the city of Washington DC.

Memorabilia with the new colors and scheme are available for sale immediately at the team store in the Verizon Center and online at the team website.
