Cavs Wiggins signs biggest rookie shoe deal with Adidas

Andrew Wiggins Signs Endorsement Deal With Adidas - RealGM Wiretap

Quote:
Andrew Wiggins has reached a deal with Adidas on a shoe and apparel deal.

Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports the contract as being worth close to $100 million over 10 years. A source also told Spears that the deal is the richest for a rookie to ever sign with Adidas.

Wiggins played one season at Kansas, which is an Adidas school.

Wiggins joins Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose, Damian Lillard, John Wall, Tim Duncan, Joakim Noah and Candace Parker as their primary endorsers in basketball.

I remember there being rumors about this before he was even drafted. But I thought it was 250 mil? Maybe I'm confusing it with Rose's deal with Adidas.

Regardless, good for him, but hopefully he stays motivated.

You know they have LeBron, KD and Kobe, right? MJ isn't the reason Nike's still on top.

According to Real GM, the Wiggins deal is more like 5 years at 2-3 mil per year rather than the 10 year 10 per year.

Nike made 2.5 billion last year just off Jordan shoe sales, MJ made 90 mill finally putting him in the billionaire bracket

Just to add to the above. Jordan Brand sales were higher than Nike Basketball (Lebron, Kobe, Durant) & Nike Sportswear (retro/lifestyle product) combined.

With Rose being injured all the time it makes sense to give the spotlight to another athlete.
