One of the best NBA players, Kevin Durant does not limit himself to the hardwood. The Golden State Warriors star has created the Durant Company, an investment property. The brand also includes his media charitable foundation and his media arm Thirty Five Media.
Durant has won NBA Finals MVP awards, 10 All-Star nods and a regular season MV. But you cannot ignore his off-the-court accomplishments. Let’s have a look at his net worth and other details.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, his current net worth is $170 million. He is getting $30 million from the Warriors this season and also has a $31.5 million player option for the 2019-20 campaign. He may decline the offer to become a free agent. Durant said,
I never got the (massive) deal. I’ve just seen a bunch of dudes around the league making so much money—and I’m happy for them. But I know I deserve that, too. That’s the only thing I’m probably thinking about, to be honest.
Durant is also offered a five-year deal by Golden State Warriors which is worth an estimated $221.3 million. Durant has a wide variety of endorsements including Nike’s shoe contract.
According to sources, Durant’s 10-year deal signed in 2014 has a potential of $300 million with a $50 million retirement package. He has been a part of Nike advertisements ever since 2007 when he entered the NBA.
Since then, his portfolio has expanded to include Google and Alaska Airlines. He has made an appearance in several other commercials including Beats by Dre, Gatorade, Skullcandy, Sprint and Sonic Drive-In.
Apart from the advertisements, Kevin Durant has made investments in around 50 companies. Some of the notable brands include Lime, Master & Dynamic, Postmates and Acorns. Last year, Durant made a donation of $3 million to basketball and sports leadership programs at the University of Texas, his alma mater.
