  • Zion's shoe deal richest ever for rookie

New Orleans Pelicans rookie sensation Zion Williamson's shoe deal with Jordan Brand is for five years and will be the richest annual agreement for a rookie in National Basketball Association history, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. And still, he reportedly left some money on the table in order to join the Jumpman family. ESPN shoe analyst Nick DePaula said Williamson was getting offers upward of $10 million yearly from other brands, but he wanted to wear Jordans because of his idol, Michael Jordan.

Before Williamson's deal, James had the largest annual rookie shoe contract in history.

From the moment he stepped foot on Duke's campus - including when he literally stepped through his own shoe - Zion Williamson has been insanely popular.

Williamson on Tuesday already appeared in a digital billboard near Madison Square Garden wearing a jersey with the Jordan Brand logo.

During his All-America freshman season at Duke past year, Williamson suffered a late-season right knee sprain after his Nike sneaker ripped apart as he planted his left foot in a game against North Carolina. The company's roster includes Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul. "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".
