Damian Lillard To Opt Out of adidas Deal

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Philadelphia 76ers

Lillard is about to get paid by someone.

The question is who?  Always smart to have opt out clauses if you overperform.

Check out this report from Comcast Sportsnet.

Lillard, 23, has a profitable rookie shoe endorsement deal with adidas, though that could change abruptly due to clever language in his contract.

Being that he took home the 2012-13 NBA Rookie of the Year award, became an NBA All-Star and reached other unique incentive clauses in his first two seasons, Lillard will be able to opt out of his shoe contract at the end of the basketball season and either renegotiate a more lucrative deal with adidas, or open negotiations with Nike, Brand Jordan, Reebok or Under Armor, league sources informed CSNNW.com.
