Paul Washington Jr. will be rocking the Swoosh for the foreseeable future.

ESPN’s resident sneaker head, Nick DePaula, reports the former Wildcat small forward has signed a multi-year shoe deal with Nike. It’s probably wise for Washington to stick to the Nike sneaks. After all, the owner governor of his team is Michael Jordan.

The No. 12 overall pick by the Charlotte Hornets is just behind his former UK teammate. Miami’s Tyler Herro inked a deal with Nike last week.
