NBA Phoenix Suns Kevin Durant (USA) has signed a lifetime contract with global sports brand Nike.
Nike announced on the 29th (Korean time) that it had signed a lifetime contract with Durant and said, “We are delighted to continue working with Durant, who has supported us for 16 years since his NBA debut.”
Born in 1988, Durant made his debut with the Seattle Supersonics, the predecessor of the Oklahoma City Thunder, in 2007 and was traded to Phoenix during the 2022-2023 season after passing through the Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets.
Players who have signed lifetime contracts with Nike include Michael Jordan, LeBron James (US) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal).
Durant signed a contract with Nike when he entered the NBA in 2007, and has released a total of 15 basketball shoe series so far. The size of this lifetime contract was not disclosed.
However, when Durant signed a 10-year contract with Nike in 2014, the US media estimated it to be around $30 million (approximately 40.2 billion won) a year, so this lifetime contract is expected to be larger than that. 토토사이트
