    Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving both have signed three-year deals with a player option for a fourth season.

    The three-and-one structure means that both can hit the market in the summer of 2022, paving the way for a little more flexibility and greater earning potential. Whether or not those options are exercised will depend on how things go in Brooklyn, as well as how Durant looks in his return from a torn Achilles.

    Nets GM Sean Marks wouldn't rule on whether Kevin Durant (Achilles) would play next season or not after Durant underwent a full evaluation with the Nets doctors and performance staff on Monday.

    It is way too early to speculate on Durant's return date after he just recently underwent major surgery. The door is left open for him to return towards the end of the season, but the team isn't going to take any chances with the health of their superstar by rushing him back. With the way his Warriors tenure ended, Durant is likely to exercise extreme caution next season.

    Kevin Durant has committed to a max deal with the Nets, but it's still possible that he engages in a sign-and-trade arrangement with the Warriors, per Yahoo's Chris Haynes.

    Durant announced that he would be signing a max contract with Brooklyn but never revealed exact terms, and perhaps this is why. A deal could net the Warriors a massive — like $30 million — trade exception, which would certainly be a nice parting gift to the organization. Beyond the championships, of course. We'll see how this shakes out.

    Kevin Durant has announced that he's signing with the Nets.

    Durant will sign a max contract with Brooklyn, joining Kyrie Irving to give the Nets a formidable duo. KD will likely miss all of next season but if he can return to form, the Nets have the looks of legitimate title contenders.

    Kevin Durant will sign with the Brooklyn Nets according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The Nets have made their move, and looks like they have finally shed their 'little brother' moniker in the NY market. While an official announcement from KD is still to come, multiple sources are already seeming to back up Woj's reporting. The reverberations this will have across the league will be plentiful, and perhaps the biggest domino in the free agency bonanza has fallen before it's even begun.

    The Nets are confident that they will get a commitment from Kevin Durant tonight and can target DeAndre Jordan next.

    We won't have to wait too long to see what Durant decides, as he is expected to announce his decision on Sunday night. The Nets' master plan may become a reality in short order. Assuming Durant comes back healthy late this upcoming season or in 16 months from now, a big three of Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Jordan can cause havoc in the East.

    Kyrie Irving will give the Nets a formal commitment when free agency opens, per Marc Stein, with the Nets still "aggressively pursuing" Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan.

    Brooklyn is hoping that Irving is enough to attract Durant and Jordan — who is Durant's close friend. The Nets are still armed with one max contract slot even after accounting for Irving, and they'll be able to put it to good use with Durant's decision coming tonight. Either they land KD or they can quickly pivot to snap up second and third-tier free agents.

    The Warriors will offer Kevin Durant a full five-year, $221 million max contract on Sunday, per Marc Stein.

    Durant's decision is also going to come down tonight so everyone will know the deal quickly. It had previously been reported that Golden State will be offering up the max, so now we'll get to see whether all that money is KD's top priority. He's been insistent that he will not be recruited and be responsible for his own future, and Durant is likely hoping that an early decision furthers the cause.

    Kevin Durant is expected to announce his free agent decision on Sunday night on his company-owned sports business network, The Boardroom.

    Durant's last decision came through The Players' Tribune, and this time it looks like he'll be dropping bombs via Instagram. The Nets have been rumored to be favorites, with a few reports pushing back on that notion. The Knicks, Clippers and Warriors are the main suitors in the running. KD's decision will have a serious ripple effect on the rest of the market.

    Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne are reporting that Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard have discussed scenarios where they end up playing together, which would only happen with the Clippers or Knicks.

    Another report on Kawhi that directly contradicts stuff that was said earlier in the season. First it was that he wouldn't want to play with LeBron James, now it's that he wouldn't want to play with Durant — or care about teaming up with anyone at all. Keep in mind that Wojnarowski obviously has sources with the Clippers, and this is interesting timing after Marc Stein and others have been gassing up the Lakers in recent days. Both the Durant and Leonard camps have been under the radar about their thought processes, so don't take anything you read about either as gospel.

    Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Friday night that Kevin Durant will look to communicate with the Nets, Knicks, Clippers and Warriors when free agency opens.

    These are the teams that were expected to be in the mix so it's no real surprise to see this report with free agency days away. How each team values Durant as he recovers from a ruptured Achilles tendon will be an interesting thing to monitor.

  • Klay Thompson
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors will have offered both Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson full five-year max contracts by Sunday night, according to a report from ESPN.

    The Warriors intend to keep the team together and are ready to foot the huge bill it would take to do so. Thompson has been increasingly connected to the L.A. teams if the Warriors don't give him a max offer but it seems like they won't be messing around with that at all. Durant may leave no matter what, in which case the team would explore sign-and-trade options to help add other pieces to the roster.

    Ian Begley of SNY is reporting that contrary to popular opinion, the Nets are not the frontrunners to sign Kevin Durant.

    There's been growing support for KD-to-the-Nets of late, but Begley splashes some cold water on the idea. That's not to say that Durant won't end up in Brooklyn, only that the idea that they're clearly ahead of the other suitors is not accurate. The Warriors can offer the most money and have the best basketball situation, but we'll see if that wins out.
