Puma has been MIA in the basketball world for more than 18 years, but recently they’ve gotten back into the game. Last spring, the company made its first move in signing several incoming players around NBA Draft night, and earlier this week, Puma pulled the trigger and signed their first All Star in DeMarcus Cousins.
Warriors All-Star DeMarcus Cousins’ multi-year shoe deal with Puma is now official, as Nike has officially declined to exercise its match rights, according to a brand source.— Nick DePaula (@NickDePaula) October 17, 2018

Other Puma signees include the Dallas Wings guard Skylar Diggins Smith, Celtics guard Terry Rozier, Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr., Suns center Deandre Ayton, Knicks forward Kevin Knox, Sixers wing Zhaire Smith, Kings big man Marvin Bagley III, and Spurs forward Rudy Gay.
In addition to signing NBA players to represent the brand, Puma also released their first basketball sneaker since 1999, The Puma Clyde Court Disrupt. These shoes currently retail for $120 and are only available in a single yellow and orange colorway.
More to come in the future but, first, an important question.
Do you want me to review the Clyde Court Disrupt?
