Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade felt it was time to move on from Jordan Brand when he signed a deal with Li-Ning.

Well the shoe company regrouped quickly and found itself another NBA star to embrace the brand.

Nike Inc, is reporting that Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook is the newest member of the Jordan Brand family.

“We are very excited to welcome Russell to the Jordan family,” said Michael Jordan. “Russell’s style, both on and off the court, combined with his love and dedication to the game make him a perfect fit for the Jordan Brand.  We love the drive and passion for basketball that Russell brings.”

The 6’4 Westbrook was second team All NBA, and won an Olympic medal with Team USA over the summer.

I think it’s a good move for both parties, and Jordan Brand won’t miss Wade one bit.
