James Harden & Nike -- No Knee-Jerk Reactions to Adidas Offer

James Harden & Nike No Knee-Jerk Reactions To Adidas Offer

EXCLUSIVE

Nike is unsure if it's gonna just do it with James Harden -- TMZ Sports has learned the Swoosh isn't jumping to top his $200 million Adidas offer.

We spoke with some Nike honchos who told us they held a war room style gathering in the wake of Adidas trying to nab last year's MVP runner-up, and former Nike client. We're told they were unable to reach any consensus about a counter offer amount, or if they even want to make a counter.

As one source put it, "Signing James is Nike's top priority, but we do have other athletes as well that we're looking to sign."

Translation: We're not sure we want to break the bank for just one guy. Nike has one week to counter, and we're told it will use all of that time, if necessary.

Tick tock ...
