As if Zion already doesn’t get enough news coverage, he was once back in the news again.
TMZ Sports caught up with New Orleans rappers Master P and Romeo in the streets, where they generated an offer of $20 million to Zion for a shoe deal.
“I know Zion gonna get a big shoe deal from Nike or Adidas or whatever,” Master P said. “… We gonna get him a deal just to have to wear shoes outside of basketball.”
Considering Master P’s offer, Nike, Adidas, or even Under Armour could triple that offer amount easily. Either way, Zion’s shoe deal will be a game changer since arguably LeBron James signed with Nike back in 2003.The New Orleans Pelicans recently landed the number one pick in the NBA Draft lottery and are expected to take Zion Williamson who is the projected no. 1 overall pick.
