Chicago’s Southtown Star is reporting that Derrick Rose will sign a deal to represent the Three Stripes:
Bulls rookie Derrick Rose has chosen the stripes of adidas over the swoosh of Nike, agreeing in principle to his first shoe deal.
“The details are being worked out, and I’m very satisfied with the work my agent (former Bulls guard B.J. Armstrong) has done, and I look forward to representing adidas,” Rose said from Las Vegas, where he is playing for the USA Basketball select team that is helping the U.S. Olympic Team prepare for Beijing.
Adidas wasted no time bringing Rose into the fold, doing a photo shoot with him while he was in Los Angeles attending the ESPY Awards.
