It was almost a given that Ben Simmons was going to be the next top NBA prospect to sign with Nike, but it looks like that’s not going to happen, at least that’s what’s being reported from Stack.
It is being reported that Ben Simmons, the freshman forward from LSU who is expected to be this years #1 pick will soon sign an endorsement deal with adidas. A while back Simmons was spotted wearing adidas Yeezys, but many people didn’t make a big deal out of it as they expected him to still sign with Nike since he hired LeBron James and Rich Paul’s Klutch Sports for management back in March. Being that LeBron is signed with Nike, it only made sense that Simmons would be following in the same footsteps, right? That doesn’t look to be the case anymore. No confirmation yet, but don’t be surprised if news breaks out saying that Simmons is the newest member of the Three Stripes.
