According to ESPN, Bulls guard Zach Lavine has decided to sign with Adidas, despite not having to play a game this season.
The four-year adidas endorsement deal could be worth as much as $35 million sources told ESPN. Carrying the Bulls’ future in his hands, LaVine may be ready to shoulder some of the weight for Adidas Basketball as players like Jaylen Brown and Kelly Oubre Continue to develop. Moreover, star Andrew Wiggins’ deal will expire soon.
While Nike, the brand LaVine has rocked with for the past past years, had the ability to match any offers LaVine received, the Swoosh waived the clause amidst uncertainties in LaVine’s health.
LaVine will be the third Bulls star to sign with Adidas in recent years; he succeeds Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler (who later signed with Jordan) as the next face of the franchise for the Windy City.
