It looks like adidas has made another player transaction adding San Antonio Spurs forward Matt Bonner to their roster. Bonner who has been the only NBA player wearing New Balance sneakers over the past few years will finally making the move after signing with the three stripes.
The Spurs forward was in shoe purgatory for quite some time. He previously mentioned in an interview with Nice Kicks that he wanted a new shoe deal as he was down to his last pairs of New Balance’s after New Balance decided not to extend their shoe deal with him. It always feels good to be wanted.

@geokthree of Nice Kicks showed the change on Instagram. Out with the old and in with the new. Bonner was scoreless in seven minutes of action during San Antonio’s 111-105 defeat at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Hopefully, Bonner gets to display these new Crazy 8’s more in the future.
