Adidas Reestablishes NBA Presence With Uniform Deal
“Athletic shoe and apparel maker Adidas said Tuesday it signed an 11-year deal with the National Basketball Association that will make the German company the official uniform provider for the U.S. league.
“The company said the deal also includes providing uniforms and other products for the Women’s National Basketball Association and the NBA Development League, starting with the 2006-2007 season.
“Adidas-Salomon AG, which has been a marketing partner of the NBA since 2002, said the deal resulted from its acquisition last year of Reebok International Ltd., the NBA’s uniform and apparel provider since 2001.”
