Rich Kleiman Rumors
But the precise setting for Durant’s meetings with his coveters has remained undisclosed until now. It all happened at 189 Further Lane, a five-bedroom, 7,400-square-foot estate one block from the Atlantic Ocean. If a Warriors fan who truly appreciates the significance of what happened on this property would like to own it as the ultimate souvenir, it’s on the market for just under $15 million. Further Lane is not just any road in the Hamptons. Behind hedges dense and tall, its homes have long sheltered a mix of posh and artsy. Jerry Seinfeld, Jann Wenner and Larry Gagosian have or have had homes down the street that way. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s childhood summer retreat, Lasata, is up the road the other way. “As soon as Rich started walking towards the house, he was elbowing me,” Gallanti said, referring to Durant’s manager, Rich Kleiman. “He was like, ‘This is the house.’” Durant paid $100,000 for the 10-day rental.
Kevin Durant’s desire to own an NBA team has intensified since joining the Golden State Warriors, sources told ESPN. Over the last 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.
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.”
Erik Horne: Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant get double technicals after some jawing. Chest-to-chest. Durant’s agent, Rich Kleiman, was up clapping and Durant walked over to give him a five. Westbrook’s dad is sitting three seats down from Kleiman. Fun scene.
Kevin Durant’s company, the Durant Co., has made its next major investment — this time in pizza. The company, owned by Durant and his manager/business partner, Rich Kleiman, will own both a stake in the assembly-line style, on-the-spot pizza brand Pieology and own some of its franchises. Terms were not disclosed.
“What we never talked about in those days in the Hamptons in July was money, and how much exactly he’d get in Golden State versus anywhere else,” Durant’s agent, Rich Kleiman, told The Vertical. “And that won’t be a factor this year in our talks with them either.”
