Trae Young and Lonnie Walker IV Join Adidas Basketball

Lonnie Walker IV

And in fact, most hoopers grow up wishing they'll be good enough to be offered such a contract.

Highly touted NBA Draft prospects Trae Young and Lonnie Walker IV have officially signed on with Adidas, joining the likes of NBA stars James Harden, Damian Lillard, John Wall, Kristaps Porzingis and Donovan Mitchell.

Meanwhile, PUMA has bolstered their presence by signing projected top pick Deandre Ayton to a four-year deal and Marvin Bagley III to the biggest rookie shoe deal since Kevin Durant's deal with Nike.

Young, now 19 years of age, has drawn a lot of interest from teams around the league, including the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, and Philadelphia 76ers.

Former Sooners point guard Trae Young is an Adidas man. Exactly where Young will land in the picking order remains to be seen.

Young, a sharpshooter from Oklahoma, became the first player in NCAA history to lead the nation in both points (27.4) and assists (8.7) per game.

Adidas is plenty familiar with NBA point guards and boasts signature sneakers from James Harden, Damian Lillard and Derrick Rose, though it is now reshaping its basketball strategy after being a focal point of an FBI investigation.
