Brooklyn is making a clean sweep tonight: Brooklyn will sign Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
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.
Brooklyn enters the free agency period with less than $51 million of guaranteed salary against a $109 million cap, facilitating these signings.
