February 13, 2014: Kumho Tire already lists on its sports marketing roster the likes of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

But the company is now adding such stars as Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Tim Duncan, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the rest of the NBA universe.

Kumho and the NBA have signed a multi-year marketing deal that makes Kumho the official tire of the NBA and NBA Development League in the U.S. and South Korea.

This is the first official league-wide tire partnership for the NBA and D-League and is Kumho Tire’s first partnership with a U.S. sports league. It also is the first major deal signed under the watch of new commissioner Adam Silver.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Kumho Tire, headquartered in South Korea and with U.S. operations based in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., has alliances with the two-time defending champion Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The company also has pacts with the NFL's New York Jets and Buffalo Bills and the USC Trojans.

“Kumho Tire has most recently spent our efforts on building an even stronger foundation with our industry partners," Harry Choi, president and CEO for Kumho Tire North America, said in a statement. "We are confident this partnership with the NBA will showcase a new leaf for Kumho Tire that we are here to be aggressive competitors, supportive industry partners to our dealers and distributors, as well as a high-quality and recognizable brand amongst consumers.

During the NBA Playoffs, Kumho Tire will present the “NBA Playoffs Playbacks” series on NBA TV, which will replay the exciting and compelling match-ups from the playoffs in a condensed 60-minute format.
