Presumptive top-five NBA draft selections Evan Mobley and Jalen Suggs announced Wednesday that they have signed endorsement contracts with Adidas. 

Mobley is considered by far the best big man in this class and could go as high as No. 2 to the Houston Rockets. It's not expected that he falls any lower than the Cleveland Cavaliers with the third pick.
