(UNDATED) - Greg Oden has his first endorsement deal.

The seven-foot Indianapolis native signed a deal with the Topps company worth at least $3-million dollars to become a spokesperson for the trading card manufacturer.

Oden will be featured on a card with Hall-of-Famer Bill Russell as Topps celebrates the 50th anniversary of the company's first set of basketball cards.

Oden played one season at Ohio State before entering his name in next month's NBA Draft.

He is expected to be one of the first two picks in the June 28th draft.
