Outside of his play on the NBA hardwood, Kevin Durant continues to evolve with his business ventures off the court.
Durant and Rich Kleiman, his agent, have launched a new series for Durant’s “The Boardroom” called “Risk/Reward,” a collaboration with Goldman Sachs Wealth Management.
Boardroom and Goldman Sachs Wealth will produce on a six-episode series that brings together athletes, entertainers, and executives for “open and candid” discussions about key topics driving the industry and strategies around some of their biggest financial decisions. In each episode, Ros Gold-Onwude will sit down with successful people in the sports entertainment and business field.
The first episode features a conversation with JJ Redick, which was released Tuesday. In it, the 15-year NBA veteran discusses his successful podcasting.
And no, he didn’t mention the Nets or his home in Brooklyn’s DUMBO, but he did speak about a “second act” and how much he wants to be a good father to his two sons, aged 6 and 4. Redick of course is among buyout candidates the Nets have been linked with.
For background, Durant and Kleiman’s Thirty Five Ventures’ Boardroom showcases how sports executives, athletes, tech moguls, and entertainers are moving the business world forward while providing viewers and business insiders with insight and key perspectives.
As for Goldman Sachs Wealth Management, the financial firm partners with many of the top business managers and clients throughout the sports industry, which includes the NBA, MLB, NHL, NFL, golf, professional tennis, and more. Goldman Sachs’ role is to provide planning insight and advice, along with meaningful discussions that expand their network and access.
