Under Armour Basketball has signed Emmanuel Mudiay to an endorsement deal.
Mudiay is set to travel to China this month to begin preparing for his debut professional season in the Chinese Basketball Association. Many draft experts project Mudiay to be a top five NBA Draft pick in 2015 because of his combination of size, speed and natural feel for the game.
"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."
Born in Congo, Mudiay began playing basketball in middle school in the Dallas area.
