“I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the Jordan Brand family,” said Williamson in a statement. “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. He was one of those special athletes I looked up to, and I really can’t express how happy and excited I am for this journey.”
Zion joins over 50 athletes on the Brand Jordan roster, including fellow ballers like Jayson Tatum, Rui Hachimura, Asia Durr and Kia Nurse.
“We’re excited to welcome Zion to the Jordan Brand,” said Craig Williams, Jordan Brand President. “It’s incredible to watch him play the game with unbridled passion and joy and we look forward to building our relationship with him for many years to come.”
