Amid free agency rumors, Kyrie Irving is working on getting a new deal off the court.
The Dallas Mavericks player has been a sneaker free agent since Nike cut ties with him due to his antisemitism controversy in November.
Ever since that moment, Kyrie started getting followed by other companies interested in his services.
Pat Benson of Fan Nation Sneakers reports that the player has signed a deal with the Chinese company Anta.
After several months full of rumors, Irving has seemingly made up his mind about his new sneaker company.
In recent hours, pictures of Irving wearing Anta shoes at his basketball camp made the rounds around social media.

Nothing has been announced yet on this situation, but Irving wearing the shoes is a clear message that he’s signing with Anta.
Then again, this is Kyrie Irving we’re talking about and he could make a last-second change of his mind.
Adidas and Puma were also trying to get his signature, but that might not be happening anytime soon.
Anta was founded in 1991, and they’ve been doing business with NBA players for a while now.
Klay Thompson is the biggest name they had, and now Irving could join as well.
Irving was one of the biggest sellers at Nike, and his addition could boost numbers with Anta.
This isn’t the only big decision Kyrie has to make this offseason, as he’s a free agent this summer.NEXT: NBA Insider Makes A Prediction About Kyrie Irving's Free Agency
