Marvin Bagley, who is projected to be a top pick in this year’s NBA Draft, just signed a five year deal with Puma according to The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski.
We know, what you’re thinking. Puma? Basketball? Yup! Puma Basketball is returning, very, very soon!
Marvin Bagley will be the first NBA player Puma has endorsed in close to 20 years. Bagley is said to have signed a five-year deal with Puma that’s “expected to be the largest rookie shoe deal since Kevin Durant signed with Nike (7 year/60 million).”
The last NBA player to have signed with Puma was Vince Carter way back in 1998. Although that deal was for 10 years, the deal fell through after just two years. Soon after that, Puma decided to no longer make basketball shoes and has not done so ever since. That looks like it’s about to change in the coming months.
Per The Athletic, Bagley may not be the only player Puma pursues in the coming months.
