Kevin Durant’s desire to own an NBA team has intensified since joining the Golden State Warriors, sources told ESPN.

Over the past year and a half, sources say Durant and his business partner Rich Kleiman have taken numerous meetings with existing owners and tech CEOs to learn the lay of the land.

The two have made a concerted effort of strategically positioning themselves in front of some of the most influential and innovative business figures in the Bay Area. They were guest speakers at the annual TechCrunch Disrupt, a large startup conference that took place in San Francisco last fall.

Durant has serious intentions of purchasing an NBA team after his playing career, league sources told ESPN. One source, who requested anonymity, says “this is a genuine goal of his after he retires, to add another African-American in the position of majority ownership.”

Michael Jordan is currently the only African-American, and only former player, who holds the title of majority owner of an NBA team, the Charlotte Hornets.
