We’ll find out years from now if Nike blew it, but Kristaps Porzingis is officially an adidas client, after agreeing to the richest shoe deal ever for a European basketball player according to The Vertical:
The deal will pay Porzingis, 21, between $3 million and $6 million annually, depending on incentive bonuses met. It’s the most lucrative shoe deal signed by a European player to date.
The future is brighter than ever.
