For the most part, Kawhi has been rocking the Air Jordan 32 Low this season but that won't be the case for much longer.
Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard turned down an extension with Jordan Brand earlier this year, which allowed him to become a sneaker free agent.
It is unclear if he will have a signature shoe, but he will be the highest-profile player New Balance has on its roster.
It is common in shoe deals that incumbent brands will have up to 10 business days to exercise their "match rights clause", though Jordan Brand has always been resigned to letting Leonard walk, meaning the new contract should become official by next week. "I think New Balance is still the No. 1 sneaker in Japan". New Balance isn't exactly known for stylish kicks, but the company is looking to re-establish itself in the basketball market.
Leonard, 27, previously had a shoe deal with Jordan Brand but left the company in October.
The deal comes after the two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Years's contract with Nike's Jordan brand expired on October 31 after stalled contract talks. Averaging 24.3 points, 3.1 assists, and 8.6 rebounds per game, Kawhi is his team's unquestioned leader on the court, helping the Raptors to a league-best 18-4 record. Signing an National Basketball Association star to an endorsement deal is one way to do that.
New Balance is best known for running shoes; it doesn't now sell basketball sneakers.
The Raptors are also 18-4, the best record in the National Basketball Association. A signature shoe for Kawhi has not yet been confirmed.
