Wade re-signs endorsement deal with McDavid

Heat star Dwyane Wade has a new multiyear contract to continue

wearing and endorsing star McDavid’s HexPad performance apparel and

sports medicine products.

The deal was announced Thursday.

Wade has worn the company’s products since 2005. The new deal

also calls for him to promote the company’s line of post-workout

recovery products, plus help ”develop future products and

influence design.”

Among the McDavid products Wade typically wears: wraparound

shorts, rib- and spine-protecting tops, arm sleeves, compression

leg sleeves and specialized ankle braces.

The company says over 90 percent of NBA teams use HexPad

apparel.
