Kevin Durant is one of the highest-earning basketball players in the world. The Brooklyn Nets have recently been in trade talks with the NBA legend, and it has now been revealed that he received a hefty eight-figure payday on the same day that he demanded a trade.
Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets couldn’t be further from a reconciliation right now. Durant stated that he no longer wishes to play with the Nets. This is due to the team’s decision to prioritize Steve Nash and Sean Marks over him.
Owner Joe Tsai has stated unequivocally that the team will do what is best for themselves, which includes not listening to voices like KD and Kyrie Irving. Despite this power battle, which will almost certainly result in a trade, Durant is still winning in many ways. For example, Marc Stein claims that Kevin received a large eight-figure payday on the same day that he asked for a trade from the Brooklyn Nets.
According to Marcstein Substack.com, this signing bonus was paid out on July 1st, and it is unquestionably a “L” for the Nets.
“On July 1, league sources say Kevin Durant was owed and received an eight-figure check from the Nets — one of two massive advance payments that the disgruntled superstar is scheduled to collect from Brooklyn by Oct. 1 while he’s also in the midst of lobbying the team to move him.”
A KD trade is still in the works, but it might be a long time before anything definite happens. After all, he is an incredible player who will yield a massive return. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
