adidas Basketball announces the official signing of two NBA rookies, Gradey Dick and Jalen Hood-Schifino. Both ballers were first-round picks in the NBA draft with Dick joining the Toronto Raptors and Hood-Schifino joining the Los Angeles Lakers. As the newest members of the adidas Basketball family, these promising rookies debut the adidas Basketball 2023 Collection: Chapter 03, the third installment of the Three-Stripes premium lifestyle offerings.
Having joined adidas Basketball as part of the first class of NIL athletes in December 2022, Dick represented the University of Kansas Jayhawks, while Hood-Schifino played for the Indiana University Hoosiers.
