"With Emmanuel joining our roster, Under Armour Basketball has added one of the game's best young players to our team," said Matt Mirchin, EVP, Global Marketing, Under Armour. "For such a young player, Emmanuel has a complete game, is a leader and plays with a toughness that stands out the moment you see him step on the court. When you combine that with his commitment to training and his positive attitude, he has the potential to be a special player for a long time. We're proud to now be a part of his journey."
