Filipino-American NBA prospect Jalen Green has reportedly signed a shoe deal agreement with Adidas.
Nick DePaula of ESPN reported the development on Twitter, announcing that Green has finalized the move with the shoe brand.
“Green fits the brand’s approach to signing explosive players on court with creative & expressive personalities off court,” wrote DePaula.
The 19-year-old Green was the first known prospect to sign with the company, joining the likes of NBA stars James Harden, Damian Lillard, and Donovan Mitchell, among others.
Projected to be selected among the Top 5 picks in the 2021 Draft, Green solidified his chances in the NBA leading Team Ignite in the NBA G League with 17.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 15 games.
Before exiting the Orlando bubble with an 8-7 record, the 6-foot-6 high-flying guard left a lasting impression by posting 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting, seven assists, five rebounds, and three steals in a 127-102 loss to Raptors 9-5 in the first round of the single-elimination playoffs.
Green also landed on the cover page for SLAM Magazine’s Future Issue for April/May 2021.
