It was reported back in October that Klay Thompson had signed a shoe deal with Anta. But since then, he’s been wearing Nike causing a lot of confusion in the sports business industry.

This week, Thompson was spotted wearing the Anta brand at a recent Warriors practice. The details of the deal are still quite foggy and no word yet on the idea of Klay getting his own signature shoe.
Anta’s main NBA endorser is Rajon Rondo who was his own signature shoe called ‘The Rondo’. Other NBA players signed to Anta are Kevin Garnett, Chandler Parsons, and Luis Scola.
