CLEVELAND (AP) – Andrew Wiggins will continue to wear adidas with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The No. 1 overall pick in the draft, Wiggins wore the apparel company’s gear while starring last season for Kansas. He chose to stick with adidas rather than sign with rivals such as Nike and Reebok for what the company is calling “an unprecedented partnership.”

The deal, announced Wednesday, is believed to be worth more than $2 million per year.

Wiggins joins Dante Exum, the fifth overall pick of the Utah Jazz, in signing with adidas out of this year’s draft. Other players on the company’s NBA roster include Derrick Rose, John Wall, Damian Lillard and Dwight Howard.
