New Orleans Pelicans rookie Trey Murphy III will apparently sign a multiyear shoe and apparel endorsement contract with Nike, he announced this week on Twitter.

Murphy becomes the latest rookie to sign with Nike this year, joining Cade Cunningham, Scottie Barnes and Jonathan Kuminga among others. They join a star-studded roster of athletes, including LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

The crop of 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.

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

The 17th overall pick is off to a hot start with the Pelicans in the preseason. He is averaging 20.5 points and six rebounds on a blistering 63.2% shooting (12-of-19) from 3-point range through two games. His 12 3s lead all players so far this preseason.
