Kevin Durant Spotted in Saint Tropez Amid Retirement Talk

Kevin Durant is living his best life in Saint Tropez.

A rumor was making the rounds in the NBA world this week that Kevin Durant would rather retire than play for the Brooklyn Nets again. Longtime NBA journalist Marc Stein wrote in his SubStack column that “one of the most well-connected team executives” told him that Kevin Durant “was more apt to retire than play again for the Brooklyn Nets.” Durant would later hop on Twitter to  shut down the rumors. 

“I know most people will believe unnamed sources over me but if it’s anyone out there that’ll listen, I don’t plan on retiring anytime soon. S— is comical at this point,” he tweeted.

It is unclear at this point whether Kevin Durant, who has three years remaining on his current deal, will be traded at all. But in the meantime, Durant doesn’t look too concerned about all the drama swirling back in the states.

Durant was spotted with some friends in Saint Tropez this week. See all the pics below:

Depending on how badly he wants out of Brooklyn, Kevin Durant might be willing to forgo his entire $44.1 million salary this year.

KD has made more than $300 million from his NBA contracts alone, and he’s owed more than $150 million between the 2023-24 and 2025-26 seasons.

Now he can continue to keep busy while things work themselves out..
