If true, the star of the Dallas Mavericks will join a loaded ambassador roster that includes Zion Williamson, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Jayson Tatum and several others. The last signature shoe Jordan Brand revealed was the Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3, the third model for Westbrook. The first colorway, dubbed “Zer0 Noise,” is scheduled to arrive Jan. 2, 2020.
Doncic has laced up Nike performance basketball sneakers throughout his young NBA career and lately has been spotted on the court in looks from other brands, such as Under Armour Curry 7. He has also been seen warming up lately in looks from Jordan Brand.
This season has been a good one for Doncic, although the baller is currently sidelined with an injury. So far, Doncic is averaging 29.3 points, 9.6 rebounds and 8.9 assists per game. The Mavericks are fourth in the Western Conference with a record of 19-9.
