Kevin Durant, DeAndre Jordan will join Kyrie Irving on Nets
The Brooklyn Nets have pulled off the signings of the summer.
Free agent forward Kevin Durant announced on Instagram that he will join the Nets in free agency.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski added that DeAndre Jordan will be joining Durant and Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn.
Brooklyn is making a clean sweep tonight: Brooklyn will sign Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan, league sources tell ESPN.

Durant will almost certainly miss all of next season, but the move will still lead to a huge power shift in the NBA. The Nets are already adding Kyrie Irving to the mix, and pairing him with Durant will make them an instant title contender once they’re able to play together.
Durant is set to receive a four-year, $164 million deal from Brooklyn, while Irving will get $141 million.
