While a lot of this summer's discussion has surrounded vet sneaker free agents, adidas Basketball has quietly signed a talented group of young players from the incoming rookie class. New stripers include Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers), Harrison Barnes (Golden State Warriors), Austin Rivers (New Orleans Hornets -- injured and not pictured), Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons), Perry Jones III (Oklahoma City Thunder), Quincy Acy (Toronto Raptors), Marquis Teague (Chicago Bulls - not pictured) and Tyshawn Taylor (Brooklyn Nets). The brand has also inked deals with second-year guards Ricky Rubio (Minnesota Timberwolves) and Josh Selby (Memphis Grizzlies).
Today, the youngsters from adidas' new hoop class are showing off their new gear, most notably personalized #teamadidas t-shirts. They're also sharing preview shots from a yearbook-style photoshoot that will likely be part of an upcoming campaign. The new members are all in Portland this week hanging out at the adidas Village headquarters as part of the brand's rookie summit.
Check out a few photos shared by the new class below and stick with Sole Collector for updates on future adi acquisitions. Also make sure you're following @adidasHoops on Twitter for the latest.
