The Washington Wizards have another new alternate jersey. On Wednesday, they released pictures of their 'Earned Edition' kit, which is essentially a red version of their 'The District' series.
The Wizards now have five jerseys. They are one of 16 teams with an 'Earned Edition' because they made the playoffs last season.
Here is a look at the new uniforms:

Notice the nod to the Washington monument up the sides of the jersey. Also, the D.C. flag on the waistband is a nice touch.
The Wizards now have red and black versions that say 'The District' on the front. Last season, they they had one in white.
The Wizards will debut the uniform on Dec. 29 when they host the Chralotte Hornets.
Expect them to be mixed in for a few games over the course of the rest of this season.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Joe Flacco has lost his job as Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback and will be the backup Sunday for the first time in his 11-year NFL career.
Flacco is finally healthy after missing the past four games with a right hip injury. The Ravens went 3-1 during his absence under rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson, and coach John Harbaugh has decided to stick with the first-round draft pick with Baltimore striving to end a three-year playoff drought.
Harbaugh said Wednesday: "Every decision is based on making us the strongest possible team we can be."
Jackson will start Sunday when the Ravens (7-6) host Tampa Bay (5-8).
The 33-year-old Flacco has been a starter since his rookie season in 2008 and was Super Bowl MVP when the Ravens beat San Francisco to end the 2012 season.
Flacco says: "I'm obviously disappointed I can't be part of this team in the same capacity that I have been for a long time."
