While all the terms of the new deal are not yet public, ESPN confirmed that “a key component of the new Nike deal for Antetokounmpo, sources said, is that it also includes the creation of a signature shoe. The process of designing a signature shoe is typically part of a 14-18 month timeline.”
With Giannis now off the market, John Wall becomes the next star in line searching for a new deal.
