NBA’s Cavaliers extend with tyre partner

The Cleveland Cavaliers North American NBA basketball franchise has reportedly extended its partnership with tyre manufacturer American Kenda Rubber.

Although the renewal has not yet been formally announced by either party, the TireReview.com website said that Kenda president Jimmy Yang revealed the extension during a private event after the 2015-16 NBA championship game on Sunday.

Yang told the website that the deal will be in place for the start of the 2016-17 season.

Kenda has been a partner of the team since the 2013-14 campaign.

The Cavaliers were crowned champions of the 2015-16 NBA season after beating Golden State Warriors 93-89 in game seven of the end-of-season Finals.
