Right after the big news of Kevin Durant going to the Nets was reported, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Nets would also be signing DeAndre Jordan. Jordan will receive a four-year, $40 million deal.

By the end of the free agent period, the Nets will have signed Durant, Kyrie Irving and Jordan, which should significantly improve their team, which finished as the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference last season.
Jordan is a 30-year-old who has spent time with the Clippers, Mavericks and Knicks. He will now stay in New York with the Nets. He is a one-time All-Star who averages 9.6 points and 10.9 rebounds per game.
Both Irving and Durant have reportedly taken pay cuts to facilitate Jordan getting this contract.
