As Sports Illustrated reveals, John Wall will receive a ”base of $4.825 million in 2017-2018” with marginal increases until a 2021-22 return of the aforementioned figure. Wall will not get his own shoe, but will be able to work with high-profile
According to documents obtained by SI, Wall’s deal calls for him to be paid, in principle, a base of $4.825 million in 2017-2018; which then increases marginally and returns to $4.825 million in 2021-22. (While Wall will not have a signature shoe with Adidas, this deal permits him to collaborate on footwear with fellow clients like Kanye West and Pharrell, a likelihood, his representatives tell SI.)
Where John Wall’s adidas partnership will also pay off is bonuses: from $50,000 for being a “League Leader in Rebounding” to $500,000 for “All-Star MVP,” there’s plenty of opportunity here. Wall is also eligible for a “base salary increase of $1 million” if he is crowned as league MVP, while a “$250,000 base increase” will occur in the event of an “All-NBA first team selection.” While the numbers might seem small compared to his $170 million USD contract extension with the Wizards, it’s certainly a positive move for both parties involved.
