They think you hear them coming, and in case you don't, Under Armour has added another big time scoring guard to their growing basketball roster. According to a report from CNBC's Darren Rovell, former University of Connecticut guard and 2011 NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player Kemba Walker has agreed to terms with Under Armour on a multi-year deal. Terms were not disclosed.

After being selected 9th Overall by Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats in last month's NBA Draft, many fans pondered a Jordan Brand future for the 2011 Cousy Award winner. Instead, Walker has an opportunity to join names like Brandon Jennings and Greivis Vasquez in helping establish Under Armour as a top-tier basketball footwear and apparel brand. Kemba is also the first player from this year's draft class to sign a sneaker endorsement deal.

In a statement made on Twitter, Kemba said, "I am officially apart of the UA fam!! I'm hype!!"

We'll continue to keep you posted on this new development as more information comes about. In the meantime, let us know what you think about Kemba joining Under Armour Basketball?
