Wizards rookie Bradley Beal has agreed in principle to a shoe deal with Nike, according to his agent, Mark Bartelstein. Terms were not disclosed, but Bartelstein said Beal plans to sign “a multi-year” deal with the brand.
“We’re excited about it,” Bartelstein said.
The third overall pick last June, Beal has worn Nike throughout his high school, AAU and college career, but Under Armour made a push for his services as well. Beal wore a pair of the shoes during a practice a few weeks ago, but has been in Nike for games and practices ever since.
“It will be a great opportunity for Brad,” Bartelstein said. “Obviously, Nike does terrific things and I think he’s going to be a big part of their plans going forward.”
Beal ranks second in scoring through the preseason at 12.9 points per game.
