After initially signing a shoe deal with Chinese brand Anta in 2014, the Golden State Warriors star forward inked a new 10-year extension with the sneaker company. The deal expires in 2026.
The long-term footwear and apparel endorsement deal, struck by Thompson’s sports agent Greg Lawrence, SVP of Basketball, along with his business manager Joe McLean, safely puts Thompson in the top 10 highest earning sneaker endorsers among all NBA players.
The deal could reach 10 years and $80 Million, with a variety of incentives incorporated into the contract, and will continue to grow his brand throughout both China and the US. An initial 6-year iteration of the contract was originally negotiated by Thompson’s prior agent, Bill Duffy of BDA Sports.
Thompson then switched representation this past February, with his new agency Wasserman continuing talks with Anta and finalizing the 10-year length, according to a report.
