Andrew Wiggins has become one of the most electrifying dunkers in the NBA, but don’t look for him to challenge Minnesota Timberwolves teammate Zach LaVine, the reigning Verizon Slam Dunk champion, any time soon. “My story is, I lost in high school, right when I was in the McDonald’s [All-]American Game, so I really don’t do … dunks anymore,” Wiggins said during an interview with ESPN.com. “I kind of retired that back, left that in high school, so I don’t really do it anymore. “Right now, you can give it to him [LaVine]. I won’t be doing all the surprise dunks. I just keep it simple — one hand, two hands.”
The current shoe deal range for a marketable lottery pick can be anywhere from $200,000 to $700,000, with exceptions every so often for what brands consider to be “can’t-miss” endorsement stars. The most recent star rookie to enter the league, Andrew Wiggins, agreed to a five-year, $11 million deal with adidas, with a commitment to be one of the key headliners of the Crazy Light franchise right from the jump. Within those deals, you’ll find an array of clauses and performance bonuses that reward a player’s on-court contributions. A player might get a simple $25,000 bonus for making the All-Star Weekend’s Rising Stars game, and then another bonus of the same amount for making the All-Rookie team.
