NBA Rookie Shoe Deals?

It's almost August and beside O.J. Mayo's Nike deal, there's not one other shoe contract that has been announced. So we asked our friends at the NBA to tell us what shoes the rookies were wearing at this week's league-conducted photo shoot.

Are all these deals signed? Probably not. But at least they might give us an indication as to where these guys are leaning. Of interest is the fact that both Lopez brothers were wearing the same brand (Adidas), which makes sense because it seems like if they are ever marketable they have to do everything together, like their pre-draft Doublemint tour they went on.

We're also thinking that because of his dad, Nike probably wants to make it more of a priority to sign Patrick Ewing Jr., even though he's a longshot to ever becoming a star. The numbers correspond to when these guys were drafted.
