Even after being selected #1 in the 2019 NBA Draft, Zion Williamson has now joined the Jordan Brand family. The historic deal will bring the New Orleans Pelicans superstar the highest-paid annual rookie shoe deal in the history of the NBA.
Industry whispers have indicated that Williamson will receive $75 million over seven years. If true, this will put right under King James as the most significant sneaker deal ever made, but Jordan Brand has Zion's contract at five years.
Is there a new King of the NBA?
