Paolo Banchero hasn’t played a single minute in the NBA (at least officially) but he’s already had a huge impact on the basketball world. The Orlando Magic shocked the NBA after taking the former Duke as their first overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, and right now the 19-year-old is making more waves.
NBA Guru Shams Charania of The Athletic has now reported that Banchero has just reached an agreement with Jordan Brand as its new endorser:

Shams didn’t reveal details of the deal, but we’re pretty sure Banchero will be rewarded handsomely by Jordan here.
Paolo Banchero will now join Luka Doncic, Zion Williamson, Jayson Tatum, Chris Paul and Bradley Beal, to name a few, as part of the growing list of Jordan brand ambassadors in the NBA.
It remains to be seen, however, if Banchero will get his own signature shoe with Jordan. Doncic and Zion, for example, already have their respective lines with the much-loved brand, but Tatum, on the other hand, has yet to release their own signature shoe.
It will likely depend on Banchero’s impact on the NBA once he officially launches his career. This young man definitely has a lot of potential in him, and he has the makings of a future NBA superstar. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if the Jordan Banchero 1 hits shelves in the near future.
