New Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt will be making his NBA debut when the 2014 season kicks off this fall, and he’ll have quite the roster to work with. With stars like Lebron James, Kyrie Irving, and potentially Kevin Love, he and the Cavs will no doubt be a favorite to win an NBA Championship. However, despite the fact that he is somewhat overshadowed by the star power of his roster, Blatt has managed to shine some light on his own brand and land an endorsement deal with Dove skincare products for men.
The deal is reportedly worth $150,000 and will make Blatt one of the faces of the Dove skincare products for men. His signing was announced over twitter on August 19, and he’ll likely be featured in a series of commercial ad campaigns as one of the “Dove Men”. This is a great endorsement for one of the leagues top new coaches.
Blatt comes to the NBA after coaching overseas for over 20 years. He is a four-time Israeli League Coach of the Year and also earned Coach of the Year honors in the Russian Super League and Euroleague after winning six Israeli Cup Championships, a FIBA EuroChallenge Championship, an Italian League Championship, an Adriatic League Championship, and last years Euroleague Championship. He is one of the most decorated and highly respected international coaches of all-time, and the Cavs are excited to have him in Cleveland.
