When does Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant’s (KD) current contract end with the franchise?
Kevin Durant is widely regarded as one of the best players of his generation. The Brooklyn Nets superstar has enjoyed a career that has seen him win two NBA Championships as well as be a former Most Valuable Player (MVP) in the league – besides racking up 20,000 points to be amongst the top 20 players to have scored the most amount of points in the history of the NBA.
Durant is widely regarded as one of the best forwards of his generation in the NBA, as his incredible wingspan and jump as well as an effective mid-range shot makes him one of the scariest forwards to go up against. The best years of Durant’s career in the NBA came at the Golden State Warriors, where he won two back-to-back Championships and MVPs.
While Durant handed in a trade request at the Oklahoma City Thunder to move to the Warriors, he did the same as he moved to the Brooklyn Nets. However, his Nets spell has not been a very fruitful one as he has failed to make the Finals with the Brooklyn franchise alongside Kyrie Irving – and with recent reports of Kyrie wanting out, fans have asked when KD’s deal ends.
When does Kevin Durant’s contract end with the Brooklyn Nets?
It turns out that Kevin Durant’s contract with the Brooklyn Nets ends in 2026.
It turns out that KD’s contract with the Nets lasts until 2026. On his arrival, Durant signed a 4 year / $194,219,320 contract with the Brooklyn Nets, including $189,078,320 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $48,554,830. In 2022-23, Durant will earn a base salary of $42,969,845, while carrying a cap hit of $44,124,845 and a dead cap value of $44,119,845.
After a trouble-riddled last season where he had issues with head coach Steve Nash, Durant handed in a trade request in the past off-season. However, since a move away did not materialize, Durant pledged to stay at least until the end of the season – but his friend and teammate Kyrie Irving’s reported recent trade request might change Durant’s mind about staying with the Nets.
