San Antonio Spurs rookie Joshua Primo has reportedly signed a multiyear shoe and apparel endorsement contract with Nike, according to Jeff Garcia of KENS-TV.

His agent, Todd Ramasar, confirmed the news of the signing.

Primo is the seventh prospect this year to sign with Nike, joining Cade Cunningham, Scottie Barnes, Jonathan Kuminga, James Bouknight, Chris Duarte and Moses Moody. They join a star-studded roster of athletes, including LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

The 12th overall pick had a strong showing with the Spurs in summer league, averaging 14.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists in four games between Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. He finished by producing 21 points, five rebounds, three assists and three blocks on Aug. 15.

The crop of Nike rookie players this year are expected to help Nike usher in their new “Greater Than” series, wearing player-exclusive models such as the GT Cut, GT Run and GT Jump. Primo will also wear some Jordan’s this season, as well.

It is estimated 68% of NBA players wear Nike on the court.
