Terry Rozier Got Fired By Adidas


In the absence of Kyrie Irving, Terry Rozier has been an absolutely magificant replacement for the star point guard. The third-year guard undoubtedly has the talent to be a team’s starting point guard.

In these playoffs, Rozier has been one of the best and most efficient guards. He’s on his way to become a star in this league, and a player with plenty of advertising value. But, Rozier doesn’t even have a footwear and apparel endorsement contract anymore.

Back in 2016, Rozier signed a three year, $300,000 contract with Adidas, but according to an article written by Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated, Adidas terminated his contract due to a one-time mistake:


On Jan. 18, 2016, Celtics guard Terry Rozier signed a deal that, according to documents provided to SI, guaranteed him $300,000 over three seasons,” Wertheim wrote. “During the 2017 Eastern Conference finals, Rozier wore Nikes during a pregame shootaround. He changed into Adidas shoes for the game, but his public appearance in a rival brand did not escape notice. In a letter delivered by FedEx last May 26, Adidas’s legal counsel Monique Hawthorne notified Rozier, ‘Adidas is terminating your Agreement effective immediately.’”


This season, Rozier has only been wearing Nike. While there is no official information about an existing contract, I guess that Nike must be happy about his recent performances no matter what. Adidas on the other hand, has to be hopping mad that they terminated the (super cheap) contract over one mistake.
