Still looking for its can’t miss star a year less than a year after debuting its first basketball shoe, Under Armour agreed to terms with Kemba Walker, sources told CNBC.
Walker, who was named the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player after leading the University of Connecticut to its first title in seven years, is the first player in this year’s draft class to sign with a shoe company.
If Walker turns out to be the real deal, it might get a little bit awkward. He was selected ninth in the draft last month by the Charlotte Bobcats, which is of course owned by Michael Jordan, the greatest shoe endorser of all time.
