Believed by many to be the prize of this year's rookie class as a potential sneaker endorser, Los Angeles Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell just announced that he signed with Nike.

This news isn't too surprising to those who have been watching the second overall pick compete in Summer League — the incoming rookie has been playing exclusively in Nike Kobe 10 PEs. He was also outfitted in Nike at Ohio State and Montverde Academy.
