The Dallas Mavericks are searching for upgrades to their roster around superstar Luka Doncic. They need another ball-handler after the departure of Jalen Brunson, and the team would love to improve their wing depth. Dallas is hoping to pull off another trade, but they are still searching for the right deal.
The Orlando Magic shocked the NBA world when they drafted Paolo Banchero with the number one overall pick back in June. Jabari Smith was favored to be the top selection, and the Magic did not let out who they were taking until moments before the pick was announced. Banchero is now the centerpiece of a young exciting core in Orlando playing under former Mavericks assistant coach Jamahl Mosely.
Banchero joined Luka Doncic by agreeing to an endorsement deal with Jordan Brand on July 28. The company has a talented roster that includes Chris Paul, Jayson Tatum, Zion Williamson, and Bradley Beal. Will the top rookie be wearing Luka’s new signature shoes next season?
Will number 1 pick Paolo Banchero wear Luka Doncic’s signature shoes?
Jordan Brand is just releasing Luka’s first signature shoe, and it figures to be a hot ticket among fans later this year. Doncic wore them during the playoffs, and they figure to be his top choice next season.
Banchero primarily wore the Kyrie 7s during his lone season at Duke. Expect the top pick to change things up, but he will be wearing Luka’s signature kicks at some point this season. Doncic has multiple colorways of the different Air Jordan models. Expect Banchero to wear those too, and he will likely get some of his own as next season wears on.
Jordan Brand continues to add to their roster, and they could quickly become the top brand with three of the top young stars in the league under their umbrella. Paolo Banchero will be looking to join that group. Be sure to check out what shoes the number one overall pick is wearing next season because he will be rocking Luka Doncic’s signature kicks at some point.
