Rising NBA player Kelly Oubre Jr., perhaps better known as Tsunami Papi, inked a $30 million contract extension earlier this year with the Phoenix Suns. This definitely added to his plush coffers, already bolstered by his lucrative Converse deal, which he just elaborated on.
According to Bleacher Report Kicks, Oubre Jr. said Converse gave him ‘the most creative control’ of the footwear brands trying to court him. This is just one benefit of the deal: perhaps he will be able to rock Nike off-court too.
He’s definitely one player to keep an eye on, if not just for the future PEs.
