adidas Basketball has announced the newest member of its family, New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks. The multiyear agreement is said to be worth between $3 million and $6 million annually, a huge jump from the $25,000 per year he was earning with Nike. "I'm happy to be here and it just felt right to be with adidas. There's a lot of excitement right now, and I feel like it's the right fit for me," said Porzingis in a statement. "A city like New York is hungry for success in basketball, and I believe adidas will help take my game to the next level. I'm a unique player and adidas is a unique brand. I'm just excited to join the family."
Kristaps will lace up adidas Basketball's newest franchise shoe, the Crazy Explosive, in a variety of colors throughout the 2016-17 NBA season.
