Dwyane Wade and Li-Ning are now life partners when it comes to sporting apparel.
ESPN.com reports that Wade signed a lifetime contract with the Chinese apparel company on Wednesday. In addition to endorsing the brand, he will have a hands-on role in producing youth developmental camps.
Wade’s relationship with Li-Ning began in 2012, after he previously was an endorser for Converse and Jordan Brand. In addition to the continued production of basketball and lifestyle apparel, the new deal calls for Wade to take “a greater role” in youth developmental camps and basketball clinics in China and other parts of the world over the coming years.
Wade has yet to confirm if he will return for a 16th year in the NBA with the Miami Heat.
