Kevin Durant shoe deal info
Nike pulled out all the stops to prevent Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant from signing a shoe deal with rival Under Armour.
Durant's seven-year contract with Nike is expiring and Under Armour offer him a 10-year deal worth $265 million to $285 million. However, Nike exercised its right to match any rival shoe company's offer to the All-Star guard, according to ESPN.
Nike officials on Saturday told Durant and his representatives at Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports that they would match Under Armour's offer. Nike also endorses Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant.
