Kevin Durant to sign with Brooklyn Nets: reports

Kevin Durant is taking his talents to Brooklyn.

The perennial NBA All-Star and two-time Finals MVP will leave the Golden State Warriors to sign a free-agent contract with the Brooklyn Nets, according to multiple reports Sunday.

Durant said earlier in the day he would make his announcement Sunday night on the Instagram page of his sports-business company, The Boardroom, but media outlets including ESPN beat him to it.

The deal is for four years and $164 million, and Durant is expected to be joined by All-Star guard Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan, ESPN reported.

Durant ruptured his Achilles tendon during the NBA Finals earlier this month, and is expected to miss most, if not all, of next season.
