Zach HerringCorrespondent IIJuly 6, 2011

Kemba Walker became the third basketball player to sign with Under Armour, according to CNBC's Darren Rovell.

Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings and Memphis Grizzlies guard Greivis Vasquez were the first two.

Walker, who was selected by the Charlotte Bobcats with the ninth overall pick, had an outstanding season last year with the NCAA champion UCONN squad.

There is no talk of whether or not Walker will receive a signature shoe in his rookie season.
