There is nothing about Fred VanVleet that isn't scorching hot right now; on the court and off. The Rockford Auburn grad's bets are paying off big.

All around the globe, Fred VanVleet's work ethic and abilities are being recognized. Before this announcement, Fred was one of the most coveted "sneaker free agents." The announcement came via this Facebook post, from The Score, on Friday (11/15) night.

... and this tweet from Nick DePaula.

It's not known at this time if Fred will be getting his own signature shoe with his new And1 role, reports that he most definitely will have a great impact on the brand. We shall see what the next few months bring.
