Blake Griffin reportedly has shoe deal with Jordan Brand

Stephen Dunn

A source familiar with the situation told ESPN that the Clippers power forward is nearing a shoe deal with Jordan Brand, a subsidiary of Nike.

Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin is very close to inking a shoe deal with Jordan Brand, according to a report from Jared Zwerling of ESPN Los Angeles.

Griffin has been wearing Nikes since signing a contract with the brand before his 2009-10 rookie season, but wore a pair of royal blue Super Fly shoes in the Clippers season opener against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night at Staples Center. Jordan Brand would not confirm or deny that a deal was in place, telling ESPN LA, "There is nothing official, but we're glad he's supporting the brand tonight."

The Jordan Brand line, which is a subsidiary of Nike, currently features New York Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony, Oklahoma CIty Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, and Griffin's Clippers teammate Chris Paul. Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade left the brand prior to the 2012-13 season, signing a deal with Li-Ning.

Jordan Brand obviously could not specify whether Griffin would continue wearing the Super Flys or eventually get his own signature shoe.
