BEAVERTON, Ore. (September 25, 2012) –Today, Jordan Brand, a division of NIKE, Inc., announced the signing of four new basketball athletes. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kendall Marshall, Jared Sullinger and Jeff Taylor have all joined the Jordan family with multi-year endorsement deals.

“We are thrilled to add these four great athletes to the Jordan family,” said Michael Jordan. “We feel like the work ethic and commitment to excellence that each of these young men personify is a perfect fit for what we stand for. We are looking forward to what they can accomplish on the court and in their respective communities.”

Kidd-Gilchrist (6-7, 232) was the second overall pick of the Charlotte Bobcats in the 2012 NBA Draft after a stellar freshman season at the University of Kentucky. The forward, who is originally from Camden, New Jersey, averaged 11.9 points and 7.4 rebounds while helping the Kentucky Wildcats to the 2012 NCAA National Championship. A member of the 2011 Jordan Brand Classic East Team, Kidd-Gilchrist averaged 20.2 points and 11.0 rebounds at St. Patrick’s High School in New Jersey. He was a finalist for both the Morgan Wooten and Naismith Player of the Year as a senior at St. Pat’s.

Kendall Marshall (6-4, 198) was chosen 13th overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 2012 NBA Draft. Marshall finished a stellar two-year career at the University of North Carolina as one of the best point guards in college basketball averaging 9.8 assists as a sophomore for the Tarheels. Marshall was a member of the 2010 Jordan Brand Classic West Team after completing his senior year at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Virginia. Marshall helped lead the Knights to the 2010 Virginia State Championship while averaging 15.3 points, 9.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists.

If Jordan Brand doesn't extend D Wade's contract something is wrong. Nothing against any of these dude's but they 'll be lucky to have half the career of D Wade.
