Young, who said he's expected to be “very involved” in the design process, joins James Harden, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell and Derrick Rose as the players with Adidas signature shoes.
Last season, Young ranked in the top four of the NBA in both scoring (29.6 points per game) and assists (9.3 per game). In just his second year as a pro, the Hawks point-guard became one of the most effective players in the league.
Despite his team's record, his unlimited range and great handles made him popular amongst the NBA fans. This offseason, Atlanta has added great players, and with their help, Young may be able to have an All-NBA season.
