How PUMA is Investing in Women’s Basketball

PUMA made a statement all summer 2018 as they revived their basketball line with the PUMA Clyde Court Disrupt for their comeback to the hardwood. Along with a host of NBA rookies and vets, their move back to basketball all started by signing Skylar Diggins-Smith as the first player within the new PUMA Hoops family.

Now, PUMA adds two of the most talented players within the stacked 2019 Draft Class. Jackie Young, drafted 1st overall by the Las Vegas Aces, and Katie Lou Samuelson, drafted 4th overall by the Chicago Sky, are the newest additions to the team.

Young was a vital player for Notre Dame who took home the 2018 NCAAW Championship. Although they were stopped short of a repeat, Young definitely made some nice plays all season long. Alongside Young is Samuelson and we all know UCONN produces nothing but stars. Samuelson is no different as the guard/forward will make an immediate impact on the young Chicago Sky team.

We’re excited to see what kind of heat these ladies bring to the floor this season. Be sure to get all of the WNBA content you need from Nice Kicks all season long.
