Jamal Murray announces multi-year shoe deal with New Balance

It's official!

Add young Canadian guard Jamal Murray to the list of NBA athletes signed to multi-year shoe deals.

"Shoes, for me, is one way I can go either express myself or show what's important to me or what's valued to me," Murray said as he announced his decision on a chat with SLAM.

"Also they're committed to giving back," Murray goes on to explain his decision in the video. "And I want to do stuff with Canada, making some apparel, giving back to Canada and here in Denver as well."

The news was official a few hours before Murray and the Denver Nuggets were set to cap-off the NBA's Christmas Day slate by taking on Kawhi Leonard, another New Balance athlete, and the LA Clippers.

Thus, coming into the game, he made his affiliations clear.

And in his first time taking the court as a New Balance athlete, he gave us a glimpse of what could be his silhouette.

In the video announcing his deal, Murray does mention the launch of a new shoe in 2021. So, stay tuned.
