BROOKLYN (WBNG) – Once NBA free agency began on Sunday, Kevin Durant agreed to a four year deal with the Brooklyn Nets. Brooklyn also agreed with terms with both Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan.
Durant’s deal is for four-years and $164 million. The former NBA MVP made a formal announcement about his future on his company-owned sports-business network, “the Boardroom.”
Irving’s deal is also for four years and $141 million. Irving averaged over 23 points last season with the Boston Celtics. Jordan, will join the pair of stars after spending half of last season with the Knicks.
Durant is still expected to miss a large portion of next season after injuring his Achilles in game five of the NBA Finals.
Either way, the Brooklyn Nets have emerged as the latest “super team” in the NBA with Durant headed to New York.
