Nike will reportedly match Under Armour’s offer to Kevin Durant of 10 years and between 265 and 285 million dollars. Under Armor was trying to get another athlete from Nike it seems like after Under Armour signed Stephen Curry away from Nike last off-season. Kevin Durant’s deal with Nike that lasted 7 years 60 million expired this off-season which allowed Under Armour to offer a contract to KD. At first reported, Under Armor offered Kevin Durant a contract with 10 years and over 300 million dollars on it. Kevin Durant’s Twitter account confirmed he was re-signing with Nike:
Excited and humbled to sign back with the swoosh!

Durant had a feeling Nike was going to let him go but Nike told Durant’s team that they would step up their game to get Durant’s shoes more out there along with LeBron James’ and Kobe Bryant’s shoes.
