Kevin Durant will swap blue and gold for black and white, announcing Sunday night that he’s heading to the Brooklyn Nets after three seasons with the Golden State Warriors. Durant has agreed to a deal for the league maximum: a four-year, $164 million contract with the Nets when the free-agent moratorium period ends July 6. Durant turned down what would likely have been a five-year deal for $221 million with the Warriors. During his three-year tenure with the team, the forward helped lead the Warriors to two NBA titles and another appearance in the finals. He recently underwent surgery to fix a ruptured Achilles tendon and is expected to sit out the entire 2019-20 NBA season. Brooklyn appears to be winning big in its free-agent sweep, after reportedly gaining six-time All-Star Kyrie Irving, who is leaving the Boston Celtics, and DeAndre Jordan, who is leaving the New York Knicks. Durant announced the deal on the Instagram account of his ESPN show The Boardroom.
