NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo has reached a settlement in the federal lawsuit he brought against a sports company using his nickname without permission.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Giannis has informed the court he hashed out a deal with a company named Southside Throwbacks.
The NBA star sued Southside Throwbacks accusing them of using his “Greek Freak” nickname on their products without his permission or paying a dime. The company quickly started working with Giannis to resolve the legal battle.
Per the court documents, the parties reached a confidential settlement which will dismiss the case. The deal states, “the parties are interested in resolving the issues alleged in the complaint in this action, and have negotiated in good faith for that purpose.”
