Russell Westbrook will be forced to wear a different number in his debut season with the Washington Wizards.

As the team announced on Twitter, Westbrook will wear No.4 next season and not No.0, which was his number during his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets.

Gilbert Arenas used to wear No.0 during his time with the Wizards and no Washington player has worn this number since 2010, when Arenas left the team.
