Boston Celtics rookie point guard Payton Pritchard has reportedly signed a shoe deal of his own according to ESPN’s Nick De Paula, joining teammate and fellow 2020 NBA draftee Aaron Nesmith in signing a footwear deal this week.

Pritchard will sign with Nike to contrast his teammate’s contract with team practice facility neighbor New Balance, with the full terms of the endorsement deal with the athletic apparel and sneaker maker undisclosed. Fans have likely seen the University of Oregon product posting images of several different Nike sneakers in official Oregon colorways, so it seems a natural outgrowth of the West Lynn native’s usual choice of footwear.

Drafted out of Oregon this past November, Pritchard has been a solid part of his new team’s rotation in a season they have had need for his services.
