Washington Wizards Current Logo Won't Be 'Prominent' On New Jerseys, According To Report

The Washington Wizards will be unveiling their new jerseys and color scheme on Tuesday, and it looks like there will be a major logo change as well. The team is planning on phasing out the current logo, showing a Wizard shooting out of a blue logo, according to a report by Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

While the team has been pretty tight-lipped about the entire re-design, multiple sources have informed me that the current logo - with a wizard shooting out of a crescent basketball - will no longer be prominent image to represent the franchise.

This isn't a huge surprise, given that the team's press release about Tuesday's event mentioned a logo change. But it should make Wizards fans frustrated with the current colors feel better. Lee reports that the new logo will pay homage to "reconnecting with the past."
