Rookie center Nerlens Noel has tentatively agreed to an endorsement deal with Reebok according to sources within the company.

The confirmation comes hours after Noel best known for his dynamic shot-blocking skills and flat top haircut was spotted at a photo shoot for the Reebok Q96 and Pumspective in Los Angeles.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed and the Canton MA based company has not issued an official statement. When reached on the phone earlier today however Noel confirmed that he has aligned himself with Reebok.

“I don’t think I’m just a prototypical big man” Noel said when reached on the phone at the shoot. “I think I’ll be able to sell shoes.”

Noel who was projected by many to be the top selection in the 2013 NBA Draft went No. 6 to the New Orleans Pelicans before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Jrue Holiday. A McDonald’s All-American in 2012 Noel averaged 10.5 points 9.5 rebounds 4.4 blocks and 2.1 steals per game in 24 games as a freshman at Kentucky where he also picked up SEC Rookie of the Year and Freshman All-America honors.
