D'Angelo Russell no longer is a free agent when it comes to the shoe game. The Warriors guard officially will be the on-court face of Li-Ning's Way of Wade shoe brand. 

Future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade announced the news in a video through B/R Kicks on Thursday.

Wade called the decision to sign Russell a "no-brainer."

"I am passing the torch, and I am welcoming D-Lo to the Way of Wade brand," Wade said. "I am excited to pass the torch to him, man." 

The former Heat star went on to congratulate Russell on Twitter.

While he currently is sidelined at least two weeks with a sprained right thumb, Russell has been enjoying a career-year in his first season as a Warrior. Through 10 games, the former No. 2 overall draft pick is averaging a career-high 24.3 points per game. 

Russell also is averaging 6.7 assists per game for the injury-ravaged Warriors while shooting a career-best 45.5 percent from the field. While Golden State is searching for wins, D-Lo certainly has done his part offensively.
