We’re told the current second pick in the 2022 NBA Draft has just signed a huge underwear deal and we have all the details!
Chet Holmgren Joins The Ethika Famile
When you get drafted in the NBA, the next step is endorsement deals and we’re told Chet was immediately scooped up by one of the biggest clothing companies in the country.
The newly crowned NBA star is now working with Ethika underwear and will become one of the faces of the brand. We spoke to Ethika executive Darius Burton who gave us his thoughts on the future NBA star’s partnership and synergy with Ethika by clearly stating, “I’ve known Chet for a little over a year now, we met in person at a basketball camp out in Memphis after texting back and forth for a while. Chet’s personality and charisma match his seven-foot frame. I thought to myself it’s only fitting for the leading lifestyle underwear brand to partner with one of the best rookies walking into the NBA.”
And we agree with Burton who knew of Holmgren’s potential all along by adding to the star’s status as he spilled to us more on the future Thunder legend by saying, “When he was at Gonzaga we would go back and forth about getting him a NIL deal with Ethika, and I would always tell him, Lil bro be patient, your time is coming and when it’s your time we are gonna make a big splash together.”
Ethika Executive Darius Burton Pumped Potential Future Of Partnership
And that time is now as Burton added, “I know the sky is the limit for this young man and what we will be able to build in the lifestyle underwear category. I’m super excited to have Chet on board as an Ethika brand ambassador.” Simply put, ‘Welcome to the familie!!”
The partnership also includes Pro’s Vision’s quest to help athletes reach their full potential and with the help of NBA free agent star Darren Collison, Holmgren is in good shape as Collison told The Blast his thoughts on the partnership, gushing, “Chet is a generational talent that will be in the NBA for a very long time. His skill set will be something we haven’t seen from a seven-footer in a long time. His work ethic is far greater than most players even for him being a rookie now.”
We aren’t here to disagree as Holmgren has without question figured things out, and it is to everyone’s advantage including the Oklahoma City Thunder’s.
Chet Holmgren Gets Drafted To The OKC Thunder
Holmgren is a spectacular big man with one of the biggest potentials in this year’s draft. He is one with a very slim frame but also has tons of work ethic to be elite once he officially enters the NBA. The Thunder may be in rebuild mode, but Holmgren will be an important piece for the roster and his pick will be seen as a positive in the near and distant future.
Holmgren was a second-team Associated Press All-American in his only college season as he averaged 14.1 points and 9.9 rebounds and ranked fourth nationally with 3.7 blocks per game for Gonzaga. He is likely going to be an instant help for a Thunder team that needs all the help it can get.
