Brooklyn Nets stars Ben Simmons, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving

Despite being in just his fifth season of playing, Ben Simmons will have made over $120 million from NBA contracts alone by the end of the season. Take a look at how his net worth compares to superstar teammates Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Ben Simmons' net worth

Despite earning nearly $120 million in NBA salaries, Ben Simmons' net worth is listed at just $6 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. While taxes heavily factor into taking a large portion of a player's earnings, it is unclear what else has contributed to the large discrepancy between the career earnings and net worth of the Brooklyn Nets star.

Simmons, who is making over $35 million in 2022-2023, will make over $78 million over the final two seasons of his contract. While he is unlikely to receive another contract as lucrative as his current five-year, $177 million contract, Simmons is set to re-enter free agency before his 30th birthday. If he is able to get things right, he could receive one last contract that pays him north of $100 million.

Kevin Durant's net worth

Kevin Durant is one of the highest-paid players in NBA history, as his career earnings are set to rise above $350 million this season. Durant still has over $150 million on the final three years of his contract, which will push his career earnings over $500 million.

Durant's earnings, as well as his savvy business deals off of the court, have led to a net worth that is reportedly $200 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. The Brooklyn Nets star has made plenty of investments in recent years that should help his net worth continue to rise long after he walks away from the game of basketball.

Kyrie Irving's net worth

Kyrie Irving will have made over $230 million from NBA salaries by the time his contract expires following the season. While many have speculated that Irving may not receive a max contract as a result of the controversy that has surrounded him, his play could make it far too difficult for all 30 teams to pass up on his talent. Similar to Durant, Irving has made plenty of great investments off the court, resulting in a $90 million net worth.

Comparing Ben Simmons' net worth to his superstar teammates

Despite his massive on-court earnings, Ben Simmons' net worth does not compare to that of his superstar teammates. While he is still young and learning the business side of things, Simmons is fortunate to play alongside Durant and Irving. Not only are the two future Hall of Famers great players to follow due to their on-court success, but they are both tremendously successful off the court as well. If Simmons is wise, he will learn from both players to build his off-the-court portfolio.
