Coming off an impressive stint with Team Ignite in the NBA G League, Filipino-American sensation Jalen Green has reportedly finalized a sneaker deal with Adidas.
Nick DePaula of ESPN broke the news on Wednesday, April 28 (Thursday, April 29, Manila time), adding that Green fits Adidas’ approach of “signing explosive players on court with creative and expressive personalities off court.”
Green, 19, propelled the Kai Sotto-less Ignite in their first ever G League campaign, averaging 17.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 15 elimination games earlier this year.
A projected top 5 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, Green further raised his draft stock after exploding for a season-high 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting, along with 7 assists, 5 rebounds, and 3 steals in Ignite’s quarterfinal loss to the Raptors 905 in March.
The 6-foot-6 high-flying guard Green is set to join an elite group of Adidas athletes that include James Harden, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell, Trae Young, and Zach LaVine. – Rappler.com
