You more than likely have seen the t-shirt toss Kelsey Plum did at the San Antonio Spurs playoff game that has gone viral across the internet and may or may not have landed as of this writing.

Plum has made a lot of headlines since being chosen with the top pick in this year’s WNBA Draft—and now she is the latest athlete under the Swoosh banner as she has signed a multi-year endorsement deal with Nike. Terms of said deal were not disclosed.

The brand’s bold vision for future innovation and commitment to making athletes better made the choice clear.

After the announcement of Plum’s pact with the Swoosh, which also has Breanna Stewart, Elena Delle Donne, Skylar Diggins-Smith, and Maya Moore (Jordan Brand) among the many WNBA players who wear Nike, it was time for Plum to take the court for the first time as a WNBA player.

She led her San Antonio Stars with 19 points and five assists in an 87-81 preseason victory over the Dallas Wings at the AT&T Center. Nia Coffey added 17. The Wings got a combined 28 from its pair of South Carolina Gamecocks draftees as Allisha Gray scored 15 and Kaela Davis contributed 13.
