Dallas Mavericks superstar Kyrie Irving is expected to be one of the biggest names in NBA free agency this summer. His current deal with the Mavs expires this offseason, and since he still remains one of the best point guards in the game to date, Kyrie should secure a big deal this summer, whether it’s in Dallas or somewhere else.
In case you forgot, Kyrie Irving is also currently a free agent in terms of shoe sponsors. This came after Nike decided to drop the eight-time All-Star because of his anti-Semitic controversy during last season. No other brand has been brave enough to sign Kyrie to a new sponsorship deal, something that could change in the near future.
According to NBA insider, Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, both Adidas and Puma would gauge interest in potentially signing Irving as their new brand ambassador. Nothing appears to be imminent at this point, but it is noteworthy that the Mavs guard is now being linked to a new footwear deal.

It has now been several months since Irving’s last controversy, and he has been scandal-free since then. Now that the dust has settled under the carpet, it is not surprising that major brands are trying to sign Kyrie to a new deal. We knew it would be a matter of time before Irving signed a new endorsement deal. Let’s just hope he can keep it this time.
