Harley-Davidson inks jersey deal with Bucks

Motorcycle manufacturer founded in Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Bucks signed a jersey advertisement patch deal with Harley-Davidson, the team announced Thursday.

The motorcycle manufacturer's iconic orange, white and black logo will appear on the Bucks' white, green and black jerseys. Harley-Davidson was founded in Milwaukee.

"It's a perfect fit for Harley-Davidson and the Bucks, two international brands with deep Milwaukee roots, to join together through this partnership," said Matt Pazaras, the Bucks' senior vice president of business development and strategy.

"Harley evokes as much passion among its riders as the Bucks do for our fans. And with that passion, along with its iconic logo and what it represents, Harley is the coolest brand for our players to sport during games."

Don't expect to see Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo sign an endorsement deal with Harley-Davidson and get a free bike. Riding a motorcycle is prohibited in NBA contracts.
