Durant, 30, has spent the last three seasons with the Golden State Warriors, helping the team to two championships. Before that he played nine seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder franchise with one of those being in Seattle.
The Nets were long rumored to sign both Durant and Kyrie Iriving with this report confirming it. Brooklyn also will likely sign DeAndre Jordan according to Wojnarowski.
In the NBA Finals this season, Durant came back from injury and tore his Achilles, which will take several months to heal.
Durant is a 10-time All-Star and has one MVP award in his trophy case to go along with his two championships. He averages 27 points and 7.1 rebounds per game for his career.
