The Brooklyn Nets appear to have turned themselves from outsiders to NBA contenders with the acquisition of one of the league’s best players, Kevin Durant.
Durant confirmed the news on the Instagram account of The Boardroom, an online series he co-produces, as the league’s free agency period started on Sunday evening. ESPN reported that two other All-Stars – Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan – are likely to join him. According to ESPN, both Irving and Durant will sign for four years for $141m and $164m respectively.
