Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has extended his worldwide endorsement deal with protective sports equipment brand Zamst for a further season.
Curry joined the brand during the 2012/13 National Basketball Association (NBA) season in a bid to put an end to his struggles with ankle ligament injuries. He has worn the Zamst A2-DX ankle brace since undergoing surgery in 2011.
Zamst will use Curry to promote their products via a range of in-store, print and digital advertising campaigns. No financial details were disclosed.
“Our product line was created to help players like Stephen stabilise their injury and provide them with both the physical and mental confidence to play without limitations,” said Bryan Smeltzer, the general manager of Zamst US in the press release.
“We look forward to continuing our support of Stephen, providing the products he needs to perform at an elite level, and watching him develop as one of the NBA’s premier point guards.”
Curry added: “I’ve used a lot of different braces to help reinforce my right ankle, but since my surgery I have only been wearing the Zamst A2-DX which has provided the support I need to keep me on the court.”
The 2012/13 NBA season was Curry’s most successful to date. He hit 272 three-point shots to set a new all-time NBA single season record.
