Details about the Derrick Rose deal with adidas have been released, and needless to say, he’s making sure that everybody eats.
Fadeaway World is reporting that the NBA superstar first signed his deal with the shoe giant back in 2012, and he made sure that there were provisions for both his brother and his best friend — his two closest confidantes — to get paid.
“Along with his own deal that brought him $12 million per season between 2012 and 2017, Derrick Rose ensured that his brother would make $250-300,000 for his role as a consultant. And for his best friend, Rose ensured that he would make $50-75,000 a year for his role as a consultant as well,” reports the outlet.
Even though Rose hasn’t had the easiest of times making his basketball career jump off, he knew that he had to keep his family and friends paid. That, according to him, was a way toward financial security. Fortunately, he figured out a way to do it with the adidas deal, even as his salary with basketball continued to fluctuate.
Best of all, he’s really bouncing back now that he’s a valued player for the New York Knicks, who could use all the help they could get.
