Lakers rookie and 2nd overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft D’Angelo Russell has just announced that he has signed a sponsorship deal with the Swoosh.
It's official NIKE! #JustDoIt ✔️✔️✔️✔️

The promising rook that came out of Ohio State has been wearing Nike for quite some time now. You can trace his relationship with Nike during his time at Ohio State and Montverde Academy. In this year’s Summer League he was also rocking the Nike Kobe 10, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Now that D’Angelo will be teaming up with Kobe Bryant (one of the big faces of Nike), do you think he has the potential to one day receive his own signature sneaker?
