As footwear and apparel brands across the world continue to expand, Puma also continues it’s rise highlighted by big-name prospects in the 2018 NBA Draft Class.

According to ESPN’s Nick DePaula, Texas Tech guard Zhaire Smith has agreed to a multi-year footwear and apparel deal with Puma.

Coming off an impressive freshman year, Smith projects to go somewhere in the middle-to-late first round and will now join an up and coming roster of Puma athletes. The brand also recently signed two of the top big men prospects in this year’s loaded class: Marvin Bagley III out of Duke and Deandre Ayton out of Arizona.

Even with these three prolific talents now signed, Puma doesn’t plan to stop there as they will continue targeting even more players in this year’s draft according to CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander:

With Zhaire Smith now added to their list of signings, expect Puma to remain active especially ahead of the draft.
