New Orleans Pelicans Zion Williamson Picks Jordan Brand

LeBron James' rookie sneaker deal with Nike was for seven-years, $90 million, or an annual payout of $12.4M. ESPN shoe analyst Nick DePaula said Williamson was getting offers upward of $10 million yearly from other brands, but he wanted to wear Jordans because of his idol, Michael Jordan.

In 2016, Ben Simmons inked a $13-15 Million commitment to Nike for five years, while John Wall had the 7th biggest deal with his 5-year contract $25 Million for Rebook. In the wake of the huge announcement, we now have some more details on how much Zion Williamson's shoe deal is worth - and its historical context.

Zion Williamson #1 of the Duke Blue Devils looks on against the Virginia Tech Hokies during the first half in the East Regional game of the 2019 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at Capital One Arena on March 29, 2019 in Washington, DC.

The money that high-flying, highlight reel-generating Zion will generate for Jordan Brand and Nike is going to be insane, and to sign him for only $75 million?

Zion Williamson, via his Twitter account, that he has signed with the GOAT himself Brand Jordan.

Other NBA stars who have a partnership with Jordan Brand include Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and Jimmy Butler. Just a minute into the game, Zion's Nike shoe tore, he fell to the floor injured and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

"I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the Jordan Brand family", Williamson said in a release.

"He told us he would "shock the world" and asked us to believe him. Michael Jordan, the greatest player of all time and I think Zion really recognize that", Dodson stated. "Since I was a kid, I dreamed of making it to the league and having the type of impact on the game Michael Jordan had and continues to have today".

For the Jordan Brand, adding an athlete like Mr. Williamson to its roster is something it is very high on as it sees the National Basketball Association rookie representing what it is as brand.
