The Warriors were reportedly seeking at least $15 million annually for their jersey ad, which was 50% more than any team has received. The Cavaliers will draw about $10 million per year.
Well, Golden State is getting a bit more than that.
Darren Rovell of ESPN:
The Golden State Warriors signed the largest of the NBA ad patch deals this week, selling the space on its jersey for the next three years to Japanese tech holding company Rakuten.
Sources say the deal is worth $20 million a year
Did Kevin Durant really have to take a discount for the Warriors’ owners to afford this roster?
