Ja Morant has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar shoe and apparel deal with Nike, according to Nick DePaula.
Morant reportedly didn’t even talk to any other brand and had the deal agreed to before the draft lottery. We didn’t get exact numbers on the deal, but it seems Morant was excited to get a deal done, rather than wringing every last dollar out of it. He posted to Instagram, “All my life my parents worked for a check. Now I’m proud to say I work for the check. #Nike #NikeBasketball.” It’s been heavily rumored that the Grizzlies have already decided on selecting Morant second overall in June’s draft.
