Former Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving will be signing with the Brooklyn Nets and joining former Golden State Warriors who is planning to sign with the team as well, according to a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Irving left Cleveland and signed with the Boston Celtics after requesting a trade from the Cavs during the 2017 offseason. This past season was one of disappointment for Irving after the Celtics were bounced in the second round of the playoffs by the Milwaukee Bucks.

Durant suffered a ruptured right Achilles during the 2019 NBA Finals, and is expected to sit out for the entire 2019-2020 season.

Former Knicks center DeAndre Jordan will also be joining Irving and Durant on the Nets, according to the report.

Durant is expected to sign a 4-year, $164 million deal while Irving is expected to sign a 4-year, $141 million deal, according to Wojnarowski.
