Fresh off his first career start against the New York Knicks on Wednesday, news has emerged that Terry Rozier had his adidas endorsement deal terminated by adidas. Rozier wore Nike sneakers while contracted to the German sportswear brand, which, as you'd probably expect, is a big no-go.

According to Sports Illustrated, adidas’s legal counsel, Monique Hawthorne, notified Rozier shortly after the 2017 Eastern Conference finals in May 2017 that his agreement with the brand would be terminated effective immediately. Allegedly, the deal, which Rozier signed in 2016, came to an end after the player took part in a public shootaround wearing Nikes. Although he changed into adidas sneakers for the game, his appearance in a rival brand did not escape adidas’s attention.

According to SI, Rozier would have been paid $300,000 over three seasons.

This season, Rozier has been wearing Nike footwear and has averaged 9.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.3 assists for the Celtics.
