The NBA postseason is always a time when big money contracts are negotiated, and Kevin Durant has inked a massive deal to stick around Brooklyn.

Many teams could use a guy like KD, but he’s not leaving the Nets. Rich Kleiman reported to ESNP senior NBA analyst Adrian Wojnarowski that Kevin Durant will be around Brooklyn for four more years. That new deal will come at a cost as Durant will rack in nearly $200 million with the extension.

Sports Center tweeted out to break the news after it was first reported on ESPN.

Breaking: Kevin Durant plans to sign a four-year, $198 million contract extension with the Nets after he becomes eligible on Saturday, Rich Kleiman tells @wojespn.

Kevin Durant remains one of the best players in the league. In fact, Magic Johnson recently said that LeBron James might only have a season or two left as “the man” until Kevin takes that crown. It appears that Durant will clinch “the man” title as a Net.

Durant’s accomplishments proceed him, and they obviously drove up his asking price. The man, has won two NBA championships, an NBA Most Valuable Player Award, two Finals MVP Awards, two NBA All-Star Game Most Valuable Player Awards, four NBA scoring titles, the NBA Rookie of the Year Award, and two Olympic gold medals.
