Jabari Parker has just announced on Twitter that he has signed with Jordan Brand.
The Jordan Brand has confirmed the deal, retweeting Parker’s picture and sending out a message of its own.
The Chicago native is a natural choice for the Jordan Brand. He told ESPN’s Andy Katz that he expects to go second on draft night to the Milwaukee Bucks, which will make him one of the most high-profile rookies from this uber-hyped draft class.
We can probably assume now that a Jabari Parker edition of Jordan kicks will be available by the start of the NBA regular season this fall. The only question remaining, of course, concerns what colorway the brand will go with for its first design.
