NBA superstar Kevin Durant came to Philly yesterday to meet with the Philly Union brass.

And the implication seems to be, according to the Inky, that he is interested in becoming an investor or perhaps buying the team outright.

Durant, who is rehabbing an Achilles injury and is out for the Nets season, and other Thirty Five Venture officials, traveled to Chester to meet with team owners Jay Sugarman and Richard Leibovitch.

Neither Thirty Five Ventures nor Union ownership would offer comment beyond the Union spokesperson noting, “We entertained Thirty Five Ventures for a meeting with Union ownership.”

KD’s holding company invests in a range of sports, technology, media, and philanthropic entities.

In October, The Athletic reported that he met twice with D.C. United, his hometown team: first in 2012, then in 2018. Neither effort resulted in a deal.
