Projected lottery pick Jarrett Culver signs endorsement deal with Adidas

Adidas, Jarrett Culver

Projected lottery pick Jarrett Culver has reportedly signed an endorsement deal with Adidas, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Watch Stadium.

James Harden, Damian Lillard and Derrick Rose all have signature shoes with Adidas. If Culver can turn into a star player, he could join the three All-Stars in that department.

Culver played two seasons at Texas Tech. This past year, the swingman averaged 18.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game while shooting 46.1 percent from the field, 30.4 percent from beyond the arc and 70.7 percent from the free-throw line.

The New Orleans Pelicans will select Duke star Zion Williamson with the first pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the Memphis Grizzlies are widely expected to draft Murray State point guard Ja Morant with the second pick and the New York Knicks will probably take Duke swingman R.J. Barrett with the third pick.

After those three picks, it’s widely assumed Culver, Virginia’s De’Andre Hunter, Vanderbilt’s Darius Garland and Duke’s Cam Reddish are the next players to be selected. The New Orleans Pelicans have the fourth overall pick. They acquired it from the Los Angeles Lakers in the blockbuster Anthony Davis trade.

Culver showed in college he can score with ease. His scoring skills should translate well to the NBA.
