Zach LaVine has agreed upon a four-year, $35 million endorsement deal with Adidas.
LaVine is recovering from a torn ACL and hasn’t played since his trade to the Chicago Bulls.
“I was looking for a partner that would grow with me as my career continues to unfold,” LaVine said to ESPN. “Adidas convinced me that I have a chance to legitimately become a face of the brand.”
Adidas currently features James Harden, Damian Lillard, Derrick Rose, Kristaps Porzingis, Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins.
The structure of LaVine’s deal will reward him if he breaks out as an All-Star level player.
“It’s a different contract than anything we’ve done recently,” a brand source said.
The deal continues Adidas’ shift in its strategy of signing NBA players.
LaVine said he was drawn to Adidas for its “brand presence already in Chicago.”
