His deal is reported as the largest since Kevin Durant signing with Nike.

This is very weird. Didn't

This is very weird. Didn't know Puma was interested in penetrating the basketball shoe market, since I don't think they ever did.

That being said, I love Bagley as a player and I he think he will be an all-star someday, but he isn't the most marketable player out there.

Trae Young was their first

Trae Young was their first target. As of now, I say his best bet is to head over to Nike for signature purposes, which will appeal more to the consumers.

I'm surprised he went with Puma, since his dad was sporting Nike Marvin Bagley gear during the season.

Good for him. Seems like a good player. Only consensus top 5 pick that I like.

Not sure what his baseline is but his floor is kinda high and his ceiling is way, way up there.

He has ABA Dunk Contest finishing skills/artistry and is Rodmanesque on the boards. If he can can to be more Rodmanesque on defense then you have a true unicorn. Has some range, not very consistent, but if he gets it going here too he could be a favorable blend of Dennis Rodman Meets Bob McAdoo Meets Connie Hawkins.
