According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, NBA G League Ignite guard Scoot Henderson is reportedly signing a multiyear shoe endorsement contract with PUMA.
The contract between Henderson and PUMA will be a seven-figure pact and is believed to be the richest shoe deal for a non-draft-eligible player. He became the youngest professional basketball player in the United States last year after signing a two-year deal at 17 years old.
Henderson, the former No. 10 prospect in the class of 2022, averaged 13.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.7 steals in 18 games with the Ignite last season. He was among their prospects to participate in the NBA Rising Stars game at All-Star Weekend.
Henderson is the latest player to represent PUMA, joining the likes of LaMelo Ball, Breanna Stewart, Deandre Ayton, Katie Lou Samuelson, RJ Barrett and more. The apparel company also signed prep phenom Mikey Williams in October.
He will be eligible for the NBA draft next year.
