John Wall Reportedly Agrees to 5-Year Shoe Contract with Adidas

John Wall Reportedly Agrees to 5-Year Shoe Contract with Adidas

That, however, is reportedly going to change soon.

Shams Charania of The Vertical has reported that the Wizards All-Star and Adidas have agreed on a five-year, endorsement deal. In 2015, Adidas signed James Harden to a 13-year, $200 million deal.

Washington Wizards star point guard John Wall will re-join adidas on a sneaker endorsement deal. He concluded that five-year contract as part of the Adidas team, and received a new signature shoe under the more popular brand. The first Adidas pact expired in September 2015, shortly after the release of Wall's second signature shoe. The Adidas "crazy explosive 3" was rumored to be the "J Wall 3" shoes, but were never confirmed.

He made a decision to wear the line in a recent game against the Rockets when adidas endorsee James Harden was in town, which was significant because Wall was rocking Nike kicks since leaving adidas. Wall was offered an eight-year, $66 million extension in 2015 according to ESPN's Nick DePaula and turned it down with the belief that his value was closer to what Harden's was. He played as a "free agent" for two years.

A few months after his contract with Adidas expired, Wall fired his agent, Dan Fegan, and replaced him with LeBron James's childhood friend and agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports. Although, you can guarantee Adidas will want to pay him the big bucks for wanting to return to his former brand on the court. Wall prioritized the ability to build with the brand, align his businesses and community efforts, and work closely on ideas with superstar entertainers Kanye West and Pharrell Williams, sources told Yahoo Sports. He has primarily worn Nike or Jordans on the floor since, though the two sides never agreed to an endorsement deal.
