Where Brooklyn At? NBA Twitter reacts to Nets landing KD, Kyrie

12 shares, 854 points

First reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Durant — who will likely miss the entire 2019-20 season after rupturing his Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals — will sign a four-year, $164 million contract.

And he’s not the only one joining Brooklyn: The Nets are reportedly also signing All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving (four years, $141 million) and center DeAndre Jordan.

Free agency has just begun, but Brooklyn is already sending the NBA world into a frenzy.

Meanwhile, it’s safe to say Nets reserve guard Spencer Dinwiddie loved it when Brooklyn’s plan came together.

Speaking of the Knicks…

A little more than an hour after Durant officially announced his intentions to sign with Brooklyn, the New York Knicks — heavily rumored to be the frontrunner for KD all season — made some news:

Amin Elhassan says the Knicks shouldn’t have even taken a meeting with Kevin Durant if they weren’t willing to offer the max.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who knows a thing or two about signing massive contracts, was bummed to learn he won’t be joining Irving and Durant in Brooklyn.
