Russell Westbrook Signs 10-Year Extension With Jordan Brand 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 13, 2017 2:56 pm

Russell Westbrook has signed a 10-year extension with Nike's Jordan Brand. The deal will be the richest for any Jordan athlete to date.


Westbrook first joined Jordan Brand in 2013 on a five-year deal.


The increased pay rate will retroactively apply to his 2016-17 MVP season, according to sources.


The deal will include both on- and off-court signature sneakers, new territory for Westbrook. 


The deal also includes a rare "ambassador clause," providing Westbrook with appearance opportunities and additional Jordan Brand legacy potential after he retires from the NBA.

I think like Curry and Lebron it won't be shared - Curry got equity in UA though. Lebron's deal is potentially worth $1B if his shoe sales especially after he retires exceeds specific sales targets.

Last 4 major shoe contracts for comparison were:

Kevin Durant Nike (10 years 300M) after he won mvp in 2014
Derrick Rose Adidas (15 years 250M) after he became youngest mvp in league history in 2011
James Harden Adidas (13 years 200M) after he was mvp runner-up to Curry in 2015
Damian Lillard Adidas (10 years 100M) after he lead Blazers to 2nd round of playoffs in 2014 (game winner vs rockets)

Who even wears RB's signature shoes in real life?
