Kevin Durant is one of the most accomplished players in NBA history, yet his impact extends far beyond the basketball court. The Golden State Warriors superstar has dabbled extensively in tech and entertainment, in addition to his numerous charitable ventures.
Durant’s next project? A TV show. Andrew Marchand of the NY Post reports that Durant will soon be debuting a business show on ESPN+.
News: Kevin Durant will have a business-oriented show on ESPN+, according to sources.— Andrew Marchand (@AndrewMarchand) September 21, 2018
According to Marchand, the show will be similar to Kobe Bryant’s “Detail”, which airs on the same platform, but deals with basketball breakdowns. Durant’s show will be hosted by basketball analyst and former number two draft pick Jay Williams. Marchand also mentions basketball sneakers as one of the topics for the show, which suggests that it may cover the intersection between business and basketball.
ESPN+ is the sports conglomerate's latest media move. It’s a subscription streaming service that costs $4.99 a month, and gives subscribers the ability to not only watch shows like Durant’s and Bryant’s, but also many sporting events that aren’t available on ESPN’s flagship stations.
No word on when Durant’s show will debut, or what it will be called.
