ESPN's Nick De Paula has confirmed Jordan brand added yet another two players to its already stacked NBA roster.
The first of them was Bradley Beal from the Washington Wizards, who agreed to a multi-year deal with the brand. He also becomes the fourth Wizards player to sign with Jordan along with Russell Westbrook, Rui Hachimura and Moe Wagner.
Beal had a sensational season prior to the NBA 'hiatus' back in March, and despite not being named an All-Star, he put the league on notice. Washington's guard averaged 30.5 points per contest along with 4 rebounds and 6 assists throughout the 57 games he played.
Unfortunately for him, Beal was forced to miss the NBA season restart in Orlando with a shoulder injury.
“When you see the Jumpman logo, you know what it represents,” Beal told ESPN. “There are only a select few who get selected by MJ, and that speaks volumes.”

Another player who joined the family is the up and coming Nets guard, Caris LeVert, who had some great performances during his time at the bubble.
The 26 year-old was the man-to-go for Brooklyn during the season restart, considering most of their main players missed it due to injuries or COVID restrictions. Although the Nets lost in the first round to Toronto, LeVert proved to be one of the most talented guards in the Eastern conference.
“It’s crazy, I was just talking to a friend a month and a half ago, and he asked me if I’d ever sign with Jordan. A week later, I got the call,” he said.
LeVert has career averages of 12.7 points per game in the four years he's been in the league.
