Following in Dwyane Wade’s footsteps, almost literally, Tony Parker becomes the latest NBA star to jump ship from Nike to a Chinese shoe maker. Parker has inked a deal to endorse PEAK. Per the Express-News: “Long-time Nike endorser Tony Parker has left the shoe giant to sign a deal with Chinese sportswear company Peak, multiple outlets are reporting. Parker instantly becomes the brand ambassador for Peak, whose not-too-illustrious stable of NBA players includes Shane Battier, George Hill, and JaVale McGee. Jason Kidd had been with Peak before returning to Nike. […] Details of Parker’s contract vary. French site Sportune reports the deal will be worth between $2.6 and $4 million annually, while CounterKicks.com puts the figure at $1.2 million over three years. That’s roughly what Parker had been making at Nike, according to various reports. […] Peak is reportedly working on a signature make for Parker, who had been with Nike since at least 2006.”
