Kevin Durant: Net worth, Salary, and Endorsements

Kevin Wayne Durant or Kevin Durant needs very little introduction in the basketball world. Currently, he plays for the Brooklyn Nets.

Durant has been in the NBA for a long time now. He was the second overall pick by Seattle SuperSonics (which became the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008) in the 2007 NBA draft.

In 2016, Durant moved to Golden State Warriors, where he won two consecutive NBA Championships. However, Durant suffered an Achilles tendon injury during the 2019 Finals, which the Warriors lost. Then he moved to Brooklyn Nets prior to the 2019/20 season.

After missing his first season with the Nets due to the Achilles injury, Durant finally made his return in the 2020-21 season and led his team to the second round of the playoffs, where the Nets were eliminated by eventual champions Milwaukee Bucks in 7 games.

In the 2021-22 campaign, he spearheaded the Nets' attack, but off-court issues never let the team build any chemistry. After trading James Harden to the 76ers on trade deadline day, the Nets made the Playoffs via the Play-In tournament. However, they were disappointingly swept by the Boston Celtics in the First round.

Before the start of the 2022 free agency, Durant reportedly requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets. After a turbulent few weeks, Durant rescinded his request after speaking to the owner and the management.
