Kevin Durant is trying to get the biggest benefit before he leaves the Brooklyn Nets, and things could get more interesting for him before the start of the season, even if he's with the team on opening night. 

The 2x NBA champion has one of the most aggressive payment plans in the league, as he's set to get a huge payment before the first week of training camp finishes. 

NBA insider Marc Stein reports that Durant's new contract with the Nets will see him getting half of the $42.9 million he's due this season before the end of the first week of training camp. 

League sources tell me that Durant’s latest deal includes the most aggressive early payment schedule allowed by league rules; he’ll receive half of his $42,969,845 salary in Year 1 in two installments before the first week of training camp is complete.
