The signature athletes under Nike and its basketball roster have been established for quite some time now, so starting a new generation of signature hoopers would be a refreshing site to see. With the rise of young superstars across the league, there are a few bonafide ballers that have certainly inserted themselves into the conversation of being most deserving of such an honor, one being Ja Morant who reportedly will be the next player to granted this opportunity by Nike in 2023.

Since being drafted as the number two overall pick in 2019, Morant has been heavily rocking with the Swoosh — often showing up in full Nike sweatsuits in the tunnel and rotating much of Kobe and KD‘s signature kicks. And after having an electrifying 2021-2022 season, Morant only solidified his spot as being one of the most elite two-way guards in the league, so he’s certainly earned himself the rights to his own sneaker.

Per Sole Retriever, the Swoosh and the Memphis Grizzlies phenom are targeting a launch for the Nike Ja during Summer 2023. Three colorways including “Phantom/Action Green,” “Cobalt Bliss/Citron Tint” and “Game Royal/Black” are reportedly already in the works. More information centered around these launches will likely turn up in the coming months.

For other news, the Nike Dunk High “Bordeaux” colorway has been revealed.
