In 2022, Durant signed a four-year contract worth almost $200 million. Now the Phoenix Suns carry that burden after he joined the franchise the following season. It’s not shocking that he’s one of the wealthiest athletes in the world. Durant is a two-time NBA champion as well as a 13-time All-Star.
Elite sports stars earn more money than mere mortals dream of. The Brooklyn Nets handed him incredible amounts of money as they tried to buy a super team. That experiment failed but Durant swelled his coffers and is a very rich man. Meanwhile, Nike and Alaska Air also pay him a ton of cash (via Sportskeeda).
