Kawhi Leonard Suing NIKE Over Logo Design

Toronto Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard recently signed an endorsement deal with New Balance after extension talks with Nike stalled.

Now, Leonard is suing the corporation, claiming Nike copyrighted a logo he designed without his consent.

Matthew Kish of Portland Business Journal shared this breaking news on Monday evening.

In a bizarre effort to try and sway Kawhi to signing with them, the Los Angeles Clippers have reportedly attempted to buy the trademarked logo from Nike. Such a deal would probably not be permitted by the NBA though, even if the intention is to give it back to him as an incentive for signing.

Lawsuits take a notoriously long time though, and there’s no telling how much merit his case against Nike even has. It could be years before there’s resolution to the issue.

Kawhi is an impending free agent at the end of this year, and will certainly be in line for a huge payday whether he decides to return to Toronto or seek greener pastures.
