It has been nearly two years ago since John Wall signed a five-year endorsement deal with Adidas, but that partnership may be coming to an end soon as both are reportedly engaged in buyout negotiations according to ESPN's Nick DePaula.
Since signing with the Three Stripes back in Jan. 2018 for what was reportedly worth $25 million, the Washington Wizards' All-Star point guard has been plagued with injuries—including knee surgery just three weeks after the signing that led to missing 27 games, and what would have been his fifth All-Star appearance. When the 2018-19 NBA season kicked off, Wall once again missed a lengthy period of time with a left Achilles tendon injury in December before suffering a full Achilles tear earlier this year, costing him the rest of the season and possibly the 2019-20 campaign.
Wall entered the league as an endorser for Reebok before signing with Adidas in 2013 and launching two "JWall" signature sneakers. He then spent two seasons without an endorsement deal before returning to Adidas in 2018.
Adidas has not returned a request for comment.
