Kevin Durant invests in Tiger Beat teen magazine

Monday August 3rd, 2015

It's been a while since we've seen Kevin Durant on the court, but the four-time NBA scoring champ is keeping busy off of it as he recovers from foot surgery.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star is one of 17 new investors in Tiger Beat magazine, according to The New York Times. Durant is part of a group that helped raise $2 million to buy and revive the once-popular teen 'zine. Joining K.D. are the likes of Nick Cannon and New York Giants vice president Steve Tisch, among many others.

For the uninitiated, Tiger Beat is not unlike the celebrity gossip magazines you see while paying for your groceries, though it appeals to an audience of mostly teenage girls.

At first, it may seem odd to think of Durant in high-level meetings discussing which popular boy band to feature on this month's Tiger Beat. Fortunately, the former NBA MVP does have some prior experience when it comes to magazines
