In a deal that was never in doubt, Kevin Durant will continue to receive his shoes and his money from the Swoosh. Durant had previously been offered a massive $265-$285 million offer from Under Armour, but Nike will match the offer, extending the KD line of Nike Basketball products at least 10 more years. In the first two years of the new deal, Durant will also receive more than his NBA/ OKC Thunder salary of $41.2 million. Nike’s old contract had been paying KD $60 million over 7 years.
What do you think of KD’s new Nike endorsement deal? Is it good for both Nike and KD to continue their relationship? What are you most looking forward to in future KD sneakers? What does this new deal mean for other big name Nike athletes?
