Top Draft Prospect Markelle Fultz Thought About Signing to Big Baller Brand

21 Juin 2017

Markelle Fultz is nearly certainly going to be the first overall pick at this Thursday's NBA Draft, with the Sixers having traded up with Boston for the pick in a blockbuster deal over the weekend. That wasn't his only footwear endorsement option though: in a piece at the Washington Post, the former Husky mentioned an interest in Big Baller Brand. While Lonzo is already (possibly) cashing in on those $500 sneakers, Fultz inked a multiyear deal with Nike late last week.

Fultz: I don't know, honestly.

Equally importantly, it was the first time it defeated India in an ICC event since 2009, and only the third time ever. Pakistan made sure it did not turn out to be a costly mistake, though, as Amir dismissed him with the next ball.

Still, it's amusing to consider the potential, as it was amusing to see Fultz ponder then reject the idea out of a desire to not want to make an opponent money.

And Williams piggy-backed Fultz's comments by saying "I don't think they've (Big Baller Brand) got money to sign anybody". He has no relation to the Ball family and therefore wouldn't be willing to make such a big risk on his first shoe contract, especially when Nike's trying to give you that guaranteed $$$. Why would a prospect hitch their respective marketing wagon to an unproven brand run by a guy who talks and acts like LaVar Ball?
