Under Armour agrees to deal with DSJ.
Dallas Mavericks rookie Dennis Smith Jr. has officially inked a sneaker endorsement deal with Under Armour, joining Phoenix Suns forward Josh Jackson as two lottery picks that will be repping UA next season in the NBA.
According to ESPN's Nick DePaula, the deal is worth $2 million annually for three seasons, which is one of the richer rookie sneaker deals.
"I am definitely excited to be a part of team Under Armour as I get ready to go into [training] camp for my rookie year," Smith Jr. said. "Under Armour is an explosive brand in basketball right now, and I'm excited to join Stephen [Curry] and Seth [Curry] and the team at UA in making our mark together."
Nike made the biggest splash at the NBA Draft earlier this Summer, signing a plethora of the top rookies to sneaker contracts including Markelle Fultz, Jayson Tatum, Jonathan Isaac, Malik Monk, and De'Aaron Fox.
