Master P & Baron Davis In Talks to Buy Reebok

Back in 2005, Adidas bought Reebok at a valuation of $3.8 billion dollars. The footwear giant is now trying to sell the brand and there are people eyeing them.

According to FORBES, Master P and former NBA All-Star Baron Davis are looking to acquire the company from Adidas for the price of $2.4 billion. The two are looking to give the brand a new identity, giving opportunities to minority entrepreneurs and smaller shoe companies. To add, they also want to invest in the community.

The two aren’t the only ones eyeing the company, though.

Timberland and North Face owner VF Corp, and China’s Anta are also in talks with adidas to potentially buy the brand. The deal may come in a few months.

Reebok has not gained the traction with sneakerheads and tastemakers in recent years, though they did sign Cardi B to launch her Club C Cardi sneaker.

Here’s what Master P and Baron Davis had to say of the deal:

“As we focus on turning Reebok into a lifestyle brand not just a basketball brand, our most important initiative will be to put money back into the community that built this company.” – Percy Miller,

“I want the people I know athletes, influencers, designers, celebs to sit at the table with me.” – Baron Davis

We’ll keep you updated on what happens with the deal when the news surfaces.
