A number of global deals have been renewed by the Harlem Globetrotters, including with Spalding, Howard Johnson International and America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses.
Spalding has been granted a two-year extension for its current agreement as the official basketball provider of the Globetrotters through 2013.
