The much anticipated wait for Zion Williamson’s sneaker deal is here: Jordan Brand. While there are no numbers reported on years or value of the deal, we just know the the New Orleans Pelicans rookie posted the announcement on his social media.

Source (Uproxx): Williamson is the latest name to join the company, with Boston Celtics standout Jayson Tatum also hopping on board earlier this summer. This is a gigantic win for Jordan, especially if the market for Williamson’s services was as robust as everyone believed it could end up being. We’ll keep you updated as more details come out about this partnership, and hopefully, those details involve news about a potential Air Zion 1 coming out sooner rather than later.
This sucks. Zion signature shoes will basically be a Jordan…. should have signed with literally anyone else and got a signature shoe without another player logo on it ????? https://t.co/ldI3CREMP1

Personally, I hate this idea. I never want a pair of Zion shoes with a Jordan logo on them. I will just buy Jordans.
