John Wall's return to Adidas on a five-year sneaker deal is technically a reunion, as Wall split from the apparel company in September 2015 following a multi-year partnership. But the Wizards guard says it's not that simple and neither is the perception of his decision to turn down an offer worth eight years and $66 million at the time. Wall says the 2015 contract offer was laced with incentives he was not comfortable with. Negotiations stalled, the two sides parted ways and Wall placed a bet on himself to test the free agent sneaker market. -- NBC Sports Washington, Jan. 9, 2018
