The current construction of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ roster features many young guys.
This has been the norm since LeBron James’ departure from the team after the 2017-18 NBA season.
Among the young players on the Cavaliers’ roster right now, Isaac Okoro is a talented young stud for the team.
Speaking of Okoro, the former fifth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft recently made headlines, but it was not due to his performance on the court.
Instead, Okoro recently signed a multi-million-dollar deal with HOLO Footwear, as revealed via Mat Issa on Twitter.
Isaac Okoro has signed a multi-million dollar deal with HOLO Footwear, sources from @YMAPAAsports tell me.
The deal, negotiated by Daveed Cohen & Adie von Gontard, will give Okoro his own signature show & equity in the company.

Apart from landing a multi-million dollar deal with the shoe company for his signature line, Okoro also has an equity stake in the company.
If that’s not enough, Okoro’s agents have also negotiated a deal for him where he gets royalties from each shoe, which is part of his signature line.
Considering Okoro is just 22 years old, getting a deal like this could lead to a substantial amount of money for him in the future.
Speaking of Okoro’s basketball prowess, he is averaging 7.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game for the Cavaliers this season.
Moreover, the small forward is shooting a respectable 49.6% from the field and 39.1% from the three-point line.
Although Okoro’s shooting percentage from the floor is decent, he still needs to work on his free-throw shooting.
As of now, Okoro has shot just 60.6% from the charity strip during the 2023-24 NBA season.
Can Okoro become a key member of the Cavaliers in the future?
