Kevin Durant Announces His Is Signing With The Brooklyn Nets

It is official, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are headed to the Brooklyn Nets.

This comes just a short time after Wojnarowski reported that Durant would announce his decision on Sunday evening on his own sports business network. 

Durant, of course, suffered a torn Achillies tendon during Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors. As a result, he's expected to miss all of next season, but that clearly didn't push the Nets from offering Durant a max deal. 

Next season, though, will be interesting, as Irving will be placed in a big leadership role with young players who just had plenty of success and even got to the opening round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. It's a similar position to the one he faced this season with the Celtics.

Regardless of the potential pitfalls, though, this is a tremendous day for the Nets franchise. They should be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.
