"“I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the Jordan Brand family," Wiliamson said in a statement. "Since I was a kid, I dreamed of making it to the league & having the type of impact on the game Michael Jordan had & continues to have today. He was one of those special athletes I looked up to."

Williamson wore Nike's with Duke throughout the 2018-19 season, but it was not always smooth sailing between the freshman star and the shoe company. Williamson tore through his sneaker against North Carolina in February and injured his knee before missing nearly a month of action.

The 2018-19 Naismith winner was drafted by the Pelicans with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft on June 20. Williamson averaged 22.6 points and 8.9 rebounds per game at Duke last season and led the Blue Devils to the Elite 8
