The Washington Wizards have unveiled a new primary logo for the 2015-16 season.
The new logo adds to the “monument ball” logo that the team has used since 2011. In a release, the team explained the significance of the new logo.
The new primary logo incorporates the "monument ball" design that has been in place since 2011 in combination with the iconic striping from the team's uniforms, the three stars that represent D.C., Maryland and Virginia (which are also featured on the apron of center court at Verizon Center) and the team's wordmarks.
The team will still use the original “monument ball” and “DC hands” logos next season, in addition to the new one.
The Wizards are 46-35 entering the final day of the regular season. They are locked into the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference and will play either the Chicago Bulls or Toronto Raptors in the first round of the playoffs.
