While Nike was busy signing the clear number one overall pick, Adidas has been focusing on pretty much everyone else projected to go in the top 10.
Adidas signed Duke prospect and known sketch artist Brandon Ingram, along with four other players projected as high draft picks including Jamal Murray, Kris Dunn, Dragan Bender, and Jaylen Brown.
According to The Vertical’s Nick DePaula, the signings are a shift in branding strategy by Adidas now that Nike has taken over as the official jersey provider in 2017.
A couple of notable players signed with Adidas include new Knicks’ point guard Derrick Rose, and Trail Blazers‘ star point guard and aspiring rap artist, Damian Lillard.
