Duke’s highest-ranked freshman isn’t wasting any time on the NIL trail.

After signing with CAA and becoming a player in the new NBA 2k game, Paolo Banchero has signed a trading card deal with Panini America. Banchero is the first college basketball player to have an exclusive multi-year NIL trading card deal with Panini, according to Boardroom who first broke the news Tuesday afternoon.

“As we continue to enter into the NIL market, we are focused on working with the top-level athletes and there is no one that is more anticipated as we approach the college basketball season than Paolo Banchero we are excited to make him Panini’s first NIL college basketball athlete,” Panini America Vice President of Acquisitions Brian Bayne told Boardroom.
