The Puma family just got a little bigger and more impressive as it was recently announce that they have signed the up-and-coming NaLyssa Smith.
NaLyssa Smith was the second overall pick in the 2022 WNBA Draft as she was drafted by the Indiana Fever. Her signing comes as PUMA continues its commitment to pushing women’s sports forward as the brand officially launched its Women’s Hoops category in December of 2021 in partnership with PUMA Hoops Creative Director June Ambrose.
NaLyssa adds her talent to PUMA’s roster of young WNBA and NBA athletes including LaMelo Ball, Breanna Stewart, Skylar Diggins-Smith, Deandre Ayton, Katie Lou Samuelson, RJ Barrett and more.
“I am thrilled to be joining the PUMA Hoops family and to rock PUMA both on and off the court,” said Smith. “PUMA’s dedication to being a champion for women athletes along with being disruptive in the basketball sneaker space mixing sport innovation with style made this a perfect fit for me. I couldn’t be more excited to start my rookie season being part of such an iconic brand and joining an incredible roster of PUMA Hoops athletes.”
