Along with the hefty contract he is earning handsomely from multiple endorsement deals. Giannis earns $41 million just from his endorsement deals, which is almost equivalent to his salary. The 2x MVP signed with Nike when he got drafted in the NBA, in a $25,000-a-year deal, and $5000 as a signing bonus. However, his contract with Nike increased in value after his 2017 season. He has a signature sneaker line with the American brand.
