The Washington Wizards will be debuting a new-look uniform when the NBA season finally starts, but they'll have one of their former players back on the roster to wear it.  According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, Roger Mason, Jr. will sign with the Wizards when free agency officially begins on Friday.

Mason is a D.C. native who spent two seasons with the Wizards from 2006 to 2008 before signing a two-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs.  He returns to the Wizards as a veteran leader, and will be one of just two players on the roster over the age of 30 when he signs on Friday. The deal, according to Lee, is for 1 year at the veteran minimum.
