Before signing with the Brooklyn Nets, Kevin Durant’s agent, Rich Kleiman, got Durant the deal of a lifetime. The deal was that if the Nets secured a playoff spot, he would receive $1 million in incentives. After a 119-106 victory over the Sacramento Kings earlier today, the Nets made Durant’s pockets even fatter by clinching a playoff berth. Keep in mind, Durant played a total of ZERO games this year…

There’s a reason they call him “Easy Money Sniper”.

Additionally, the Nets also owe Kyrie Irving, who played a total of 20 games this season, $250,000 in incentives. Irving finished the year shooting above 88.5% from the free-throw line and made more than 2.8 three-pointers per game, earning him those incentives.
