Kevin Durant may be sidelined with a calf injury as his Golden State Warriors face the Portland Trailblazers in the Western Conference Finals of the NBA playoffs, but he's still making business moves.
Thirty Five Ventures, the company Durant owns with sports business executive Rich Kleiman, has announced that it's become an equity partner in New York-based Master & Dynamic, an audio company known for well-crafted headphones featuring premium materials and excellent sound.
"In addition to having part ownership in Master & Dynamic, the full partnership will also see Durant and Thirty Five Ventures work with the company on creative, design and building out the intersection of sports and music," according to Master & Dynamic.
Recently Master & Dynamic released its first noise-cancelling headphone, the MW65 ANC, and in June, the company says a special edition "Studio 35" version will hit stores in a color design that Durant selected.
It's unclear what those colors will be and whether they'll offer any hints as to where Durant will play next year.
He's a free agent at the end of the season and New York and Brooklyn are possible destinations -- or so Knicks and Nets fans hope.
