Jordan Brand welcomes Jayson Tatum and Rui Hachimura to be the next players to represent Jumpman on the hardwood.
Tatum has loved Jordan Brand since he was a kid growing up in St. Louis. Selected third in the 2017 NBA Draft, he is taking the next step in his career by joining the Jordan Brand Family:
“It’s a tremendous feeling to be a part of the Jordan Brand family. I can’t really express how happy and excited I am for this journey. It’s truly an honor,” Tatum shared.
Hachimura recently became the first Japanese player to be selected in the first round of the NBA Draft when the Washington Wizards selected him with the 9th pick. He is also the first Japanese-born athlete to join the Jumpman Family:
“It’s a very special feeling to be a part of the Jordan Brand family. Jordan Brand is one of top companies in world and it is amazing to be part of it,” said Hachimura.
The addition of Tatum and Hachimura comes on the heels of new Jordan Brand roster members, WNBA players Asia Durr and Kia Nurse, and NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
