Wiggins, who is entering his seventh NBA season after being selected first overall in 2014, will be one of the higher-profile athletes that the brand represents. With the Warriors looking to return to prominence after a down year, there will be more eyes on the performance - and footwear - of Wiggins than ever before. He began his career as an Adidas athlete and, once that contract expired, was seen wearing numerous Nike styles over the past two seasons.

After being acquired by Golden State at the 2020 trade deadline, Wiggins averaged 19.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 12 games with his new team, numbers he could very well improve on with a training camp period under his belt.
While Dub Nation holds its collective breath awaiting updates on the status of Klay Thompson in the upcoming season, Wiggins will team with two-time MVP Stephen Curry, former Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green and 2020 No. 2 overall pick James Wiseman in working to return the Warriors back toward the top of the Western Conference.
