Kawhi Leonard turned down a 4-Year deal with Jordan Brand worth more than $20 million earlier this year. News has broke that Jordan Brand will let the now Toronto Raptors superstar walk once his contract expires this year.
Currently Leonard’s deal with Jordan Brand is less than $500,000 per year. The new deal is much less than that and didn’t offer him a signature shoe.
There are more NBA athletes which are looking for a new sneaker deal including Joel Embiid (adidas), Andrew Wiggins (adidas), Gordon Hayward (Nike) and Kelly Oubre Jr. (adidas).
While Leonard will officially leave Jordan Brand soon, it isn’t known which sneaker company he will eventually sign with. Make sure to check back with us for more updates.
