Energy Drink Brand GURU Signs Partnership With Raptors Rookie Gradey Dick

The sharpshooting rookie was a natural fit for the Canadian energy drink brand.

GURU Organic Energy

The newest Raptors draft pick, Gradey Dick, has signed an endorsement partnership deal with Canadian brand GURU Organic Energy, makers of the world's first natural energy drink.

The 13th overall pick in this year's NBA Draft, Gradey is one of the most exciting young players to hit Toronto in a long time. Gradey is known for his energy: he’s a major force on social media and on the court with his sharpshooting technique.

We've already seen Gradey make his mark in Toronto, from getting a follow on social media by Toronto's own Drake, to attending this year's Caribana festival to much fanfare. Gradey suited up in the 2023 NBA Summer League with some of his new teammates and found immediate success, which is only helping to build anticipation surrounding the youth movement on Canada's Team.

"As I go into a new city like Toronto, it takes a lot of energy embracing a journey like this, and GURU helps me do that," Gradey says. You can watch the rest of his new promo video with GURU below.

Given how active Gradey is on socials and on the court, it's not surprising that the Kansas native loves energy drinks, so it made perfect sense for him to align himself with a natural energy brand like GURU. The fact that GURU is Canadian—even better.

Founded in 1999 in Canada, GURU Energy is the world's first natural energy drink. The brand prides itself on using healthy and natural ingredients, providing optimal functionality and energy. Click here for more information.
