Zion Williamson has interest from seven shoe companies

Zion Williamson

What team ends up drafting Zion Williamson is the most intriguing question surrounding the Duke star. But it’s not the only big one that will be answered in the coming months.

Another major question about Williamson is with what shoe company he ends up signing. According to ESPN’s Nick DePaula, seven different shoe companies have interest in Williamson. In his original report on the matter, DePaula speculated that Williamson could receive offers from six different brands: Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, New Balance, Puma and Anta.

During an appearance on ESPN’s “The Jump” Thursday, DePaula said he has talked to a seventh company that wants to be involved in the bidding for Williamson. He says that the brand is Chinese, like Anta. One company reportedly is willing to offer $10 million a year for Williamson.

Williamson is worth that kind of investment. Not only is he a talented, athletic player, but he also seems to have great character. He has a tremendous following that is only growing and is already a star. And while Nike seems like it could make sense, don’t discount another brand in the mix.
