“Kevin Durant is a world-class athlete and a star of Sonic’s hometown basketball team, but just as importantly he’s also a stellar role model,” said Clifford Hudson, CEO and president of Sonic Corp. “He’s enthusiastic Sonic fan and a great fit for our brand personality. We’re thrilled he’s part of the Sonic team.”

Durant will be teaming up with Sonic’s Limeades for Learning and Sonic will support the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation.
