Atlanta Dream rookie Rhyne Howard, who was selected with the first overall pick in last month’s 2022 WNBA Draft, has reportedly inked a multi-year shoe deal with Jordan Brand, per ESPN’s Nick DePaula.
An elite scorer who can shoot from anywhere and defend multiple positions, Howard is a big and athletic wing who many saw as the consensus first overall pick heading into the draft. She will be depended on heavily for the Dream as they start their rebuild.
Details of Howard’s new deal with Jordan have not yet been revealed. She joins several WNBA players who have signed with Jordan Brand in recent years, including the Chicago Sky’s Dana Evans and Dallas Wings’ Isabelle Harrison.
Howard will make her professional debut on May 7 when the Atlanta Dream begin their regular season against the Dallas Wings at College Park Center.
