Kevin Durant is signing with the Brooklyn Nets, along with Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan. The news comes in the hour before 2019 NBA Free Agency officially opens.

Durant played with the Golden State Warriors last season, falling with an Achilles injury in the NBA Finals. He averaged 26 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists. He is expected to miss much of the upcoming season in recovery.

Irving averaged 24 points, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds for the Boston Celtics.

DeAndre Jordan split time with the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks last season, averaging 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Brooklyn enters the free agency period with less than $51 million of guaranteed salary against a $109 million cap, facilitating these signings.
