Nike reportedly won’t get into a bidding war over James Harden’s endorsement.
According to a TMZ report, Nike has declined to match Harden’s reported 13-year, $200 million offer from adidas.
James Harden is dead to Nike — the Swoosh is backing out of the running to land a new contract with Khloe Kardashian’s NBA superstar BF … TMZ Sports has learned.
Sources connected to Nike tell us the company has decided it won’t try to top the $200 million deal Adidas offered Harden last week. As we’ve reported … Nike had concerns about sinking that much dough into just ONE player, when it has several other superstars to sign.
Harden, who has been strictly Nike since entering the L in ’09, will join Derrick Rose, Andrew Wiggins, John Wall and Damian Lillard on the Three Stripes roster.
