Nets believe they are getting Kevin Durant, DeAndre Jordan
The Brooklyn Nets are confident they are about to have a huge offseason.
It has been widely reported that Kyrie Irving already has a handshake agreement in place and will sign with the Nets as soon as free agency begins on Sunday. According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, they have no intention of stopping there. The Nets are confident they are going to sign Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan in addition to Irving.
An undeniable vibe of confidence is emanating from Brooklyn as we speak: The Nets sure seem to believe they are getting Kevin Durant's commitment tonight to go with Kyrie Irving"s … with DeAndre Jordan, Durant's close friend, to follow

Durant is not going to leave fans hanging, as he is planning to announce his decision via his own sports business TV show on instagram Sunday night. The Golden State Warriors are reportedly planning to offer him a five-year, supermax contract worth $221 million, but there has been increasing talk that Durant will turn the massive deal down.
Many believe Durant’s decision will come down to returning to the Warriors or signing with the New York Knicks. Durant has also reportedly discussed playing with another top free agent on the market, though that seems somewhat unlikely.
