Kevin Durant is already thinking about a life after basketball, and it might include NBA ownership. ESPN’s Chris Haynes reported on Monday that Durant is increasing his interest in one day owning an NBA franchise.
Though he doesn’t have any interest in picking players as an All-Star Game captain, he does find owning and running an entire franchise interesting. There have been rumblings about his post-playing days in the past, but Haynes reported Monday that Durant’s interest has increased in recent years.
The Warriors’ star has become very active in recent years in the business world, investing heavily in a number of non-basketball businesses particularly in the tech sphere now that he’s in the Bay Area. Haynes said Durant is actively pursuing it, and along with his business partner Rich Kleiman he’s taken meetings with “existing owners and tech CEOs to learn the lay of the land.”
