Derrick Rose has signed the second biggest deal in shoe history.

The Chicago Bulls guard just inked a new contract with Adidas estimated to be worth $260 million over 14-years, according to a report by CSNChicago.com.

It is another record held by Michael Jordan, that Rose comes in second.

In early February, Rose and Adidas introduced adizero Rose 2.5 - his fourth signature shoe for the company which was touted as the lightest basketball sneaker available at only 11 oz.

Rumors of Rose's deal speculated it would be based on his value in China, where he outsells LeBron James.

Rose is currently in Orlando, Fla., making his third appearance in the NBA All-Star game.

He signed a five-year extension with the Bulls worth about $94 million in December 2011.
