Ben Simmons to sign Nike sneaker deal


Former LSU Tigers star Ben Simmons, the projected No. 1 or No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, announced on Tuesday that he will be signing an exclusive shoe deal with Nike.

Simmons made his announcement in a video for Uninterrupted.

Simmons was reportedly deciding between signing a sneaker deal with Nike or adidas.

Ultimately, he went with the Swoosh.

According to the reports, Simmons signed a five-year endorsement deal with the company worth $7.5 million. However, there were actually less incentives in the Nike deal. The adidas deal reportedly was worth $10 million overall, with a $2 million signing bonus and on-court incentives.

The 2016 NBA Draft will be held on June 23, when Simmons will learn whether he begins his professional career with either the Philadelphia 76ers or Los Angeles Lakers.
