James Harden’s Adidas deal will pay him almost as much as his Rockets salary
James Harden is now an Adidas man.
The guard has left Nike to sign a reported 13-year, $200 million deal with the athletic gear company, which officially starts on Oct. 1.
And according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, this means Harden will make nearly as much from his shoe deal as he does from his actual basketball contract with the Houston Rockets.
Here’s how the two deals compare in average annual dollars:
