The Brotherhood takeover of Jordan Brand continues as Nike officially announced Paolo Banchero as the latest former Blue Devil to sign with Nike’s prestigious brand.

Even better, Banchero points to Zion Williamson and Jayson Tatum as reasons for signing with Nike: “We had good conversations and everything they said played a part in me eventually making a decision. [What stood out was] them saying, regardless of how much money they’re paying, they’re always going to take care of you. Anything you need, on the court, off the court, they’re going to try their best to make it happen for you and look out for you.”
