As part of the partnership, Mondelēz International will create a variety of specialty basketball-branded products and consumer promotions to feature even more brands within the portfolio including Chips Ahoy!, Nutter Butter, belVita, Ritz Crackers and Trident.

"Creating unique products and consumer promotions with Mondelēz International's iconic collection of brands is going to be an enjoyable way to bring our partnership together for NBA fans," said Dan Rossomondo, senior vice president, head of media and business development, NBA.

Following the limited-edition launch there will be a new "Taste Greatness" sweepstakes to give consumers a chance to win a grand prize trip to NBA All-Star 2022.

"We're excited to work with the NBA to further our shared commitment of bringing people together and building communities," said Lawson. "Through this partnership, we will create moments across our brand portfolio that unite all NBA enthusiasts -- from teammates and coaches, to fans and families."
