Here's How Much Kevin Durant Is Worth

Those who know all about Kevin Durant will be aware of the fact that there are plenty of interesting tidbits of info when it comes to the NBA star. For instance, he's friends with Kyrie Irving, found himself in a feud with LeBron James, and was even (eek) dumped by his fiancee. He also contracted the coronavirus, which is unfortunate for anyone, let alone a professional athlete who depends on his body being in tip-top shape.

On top of all that, Durant has dominated during his years on the court. Drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics — a team that later became the Oklahoma City Thunder — as the second pick in 2007, the forward was eventually traded to the Golden State Warriors before moving over to the Brooklyn Nets, according to Britannica's breakdown of his moves throughout the NBA. However, wherever Durant might be playing, he usually manages to show off how truly talented he is at the sport. Named the NBA's MVP award for the 2013-2014 seasons, he has "established himself as one of the best players of his generation."

Want a few stats and facts to back that up? Well, according to the NBA, he "averages 27 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.12 steals, and 1.1 blocks per game." He was also an All-Star 10 times in a row and was a scoring champion four different times. Impressive? Yep! And that's why he's earned enough money to make him a fortune.

Kevin Durant banks a fortune by making buckets

There's no doubt that you can make a lot of money by playing in the NBA, and Kevin Durant is certainly proof of that. In fact, by sinking buckets, making passes, and winning games, the superstar athlete has made a staggering amount of money over the years.

Just how much money? According to Forbes, when Durant signed with the Brooklyn Nets in 2019, he inked a four-year contract that was worth a whopping $164 million. On top of that, he has brought in around $35 million thanks to sponsorship deals, while also owning a media company. With all of that going on and padding Durant's bank account, Forbes included him on their list of the world's highest-paid celebrities of 2020. He took the 24th spot thanks to the fact that he earned $63.9 million that year alone, which put him ahead of other famous (and seriously rich) figures like Taylor Swift, Tiger Woods, and Post Malone.

While Durant is set to bring in big bucks for years to come, Celebrity Net Worth reports that he already has a massive $170 million fortune.
