Nike has three new Kentucky Wildcats to represent the swoosh now that UK’s top three NBA draft entrants have signed with the brand.
Darren Rovell reported De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk and Bam Adebayo all signed their first shoe contracts with Nike. We told you about Adebayo’s deal last week, but I think this is the first we’ve heard of Fox and Monk joining the team.
Other NBA Wildcats with Nike sponsorships include DeMarcus Cousins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Davis, Devin Booker, Eric Bledsoe, Patrick Patterson and Julius Randle, among others.
Jamal Murray and Brandon Knight are the lone Adidas endorsers, while John Wall remains a free agent in the shoe game.
