Default NBA: Durant signs 7-year, $60 million endorsement deal with Nike

Quote:
Kevin Durant signed a seven-year, $60 million endorsement deal with Nike that includes a $10 million signing bonus, the second-largest rookie deal in basketball.

Nike and Durant's agent's office confirmed Wednesday the deal had been reached.

"We are very pleased to have Kevin as a part of the Nike Basketball family," said Craig Zanon, vice president and general manager of global basketball. "Kevin is an amazing talent on the court and a quality person off the court and we are happy to be partnering with him as he starts his NBA career."

The Seattle Times, citing industry sources, reported on Wednesday that Durant had earlier turned down a $70 million deal with adidas. That contract called for a $12 million signing bonus, but Durant has a history dating to eighth grade with Nike.

"At the end of the day, Kevin has been with Nike his whole career and he felt comfortable with them," Durant's agent Aaron Goodwin said, according to the paper. "He took the time to give adidas the opportunity and they're a great company, but he chose the company that he's more familiar with. And we build brands on authenticity and it's more authentic for him to be somewhere where he wants to be and he's comfortable."

The paper said that Nike will unveil a signature Durant shoe after his rookie season with the Sonics. Durant has reportedly expressed an interest in endorsing a midrange priced shoe.
I so want Durant to be a flop next season, I can't stand the little bastard...

He shouldn't be making $60 million when he hasn't even stepped onto an NBA court.

I like Durant. He really wants to succeed, so much to the point where he's even taking his image into consideration. He has only one tattoo, and you can't even see it.

Good for him.

Good for Durant. He seems to be a hard worker and plays with a passion for the game, something I really like instead of some players who come out and play only for the money.

I like Durant, and I'm gonna laugh my ass of when its the next Oden/Bowie Durant/Jordan deal. No I'm not saying Durant is better then Jordan, but he is a hell of a lot better then Oden.

They had an exhibition game with the USA team split up, and Durant held his own. Not sure how legit that game is in terms of effort and aggressiveness, but Durant kept up. He just looks scrawny as hell out there.

I hope Oden nor Durant don't flop. Mostly Oden, because I would hate to see the guy get torn apart. I'd feel bad.... I have more confidence in Durant to do well.
