Despite giving up $US10 million offer from a rival brand, Zion Williamson is able to make a record by signing biggest rookie shoe endorsement deal in the history of NBA.
Williamson’s is the biggest rookie shoe endorsement deal signed in the NBA after LeBron James, who signed with Nike in 2003 for $US87 million.
Reportedly, Williamson’s deal with Nike’s Jordan brand is worth $107 million (US$75m) for four years.
In fact this endorsement deal puts Williamson above Kevin Durant’s seven-year, $US60 million deal with the SuperSonics in 2007 and Ben Simmons’ rookie shoe endorsement deal with Nike for five-year for a total $US40 million.
