New Washington Wizards owner Ted Leonsis is putting another stamp on the Washington Wizards, making a color change to the Wiz uniforms.
"Team President Ernie Grunfeld said Thursday the Wizards will change the colors of their uniforms for the 2011-12 season.
The switch is spurred by new owner Ted Leonsis, whose Washington Capitals also wear the colors of the U.S. flag. Leonsis has said the desire for new colors was among the top suggestions he received from fans after assuming control of the team earlier this year.
The Wizards, who open training camp next week, will spend one last season in their current colors of slate blue, black, gold and white."
