On July 1, , Durant officially announced on the social media of his company The Boardroom that he would join the Nets for 164 million in 4 years!
Moreover, Irving and Jordan Jr. also promised to join. It is reported that Irving’s contract is 141 million for 4 years.
On July 1, , the door to the NBA’s free market had just opened. The famous ESPN reporter Wo Shen broke four news in a row, directly detonating major media.
The Nets completed the reconstruction in an instant, and at the same time declared that the Knicks, Clippers and other teams failed to chase Durant.
Durant will meet with the Warriors management this Thursday. Warriors general manager Myers expressed his understanding of Durant’s team selection.
After the Warriors lost Durant, it also announced the official disintegration of the 5-star lineup.
During the finals of last season, the Warriors’ medical team assessed that Durant could play in 5 games. As a result, KD suffered a serious Achilles tendon rupture.
The wrong assessment even affected Durant’s entire career.
The Nets have invested a lot of money in the medical team in recent years, recruited several experts with superb medical skills, and successfully built an excellent medical team.
It is worth noting that Durant’s Achilles tendon rupture was performed by the Nets team doctor.
After learning from the Warriors, Durant must pay more attention to the team’s medical team. With this advantage, the Nets greatly influenced Durant’s decision.
The Nets had a record of 42 wins and 40 losses in the regular season last season, and entered the playoffs as the sixth place in the Eastern Conference. The strength of the lineup is evident.
With the addition of Durant, Irving and Jordan, this team will usher in the most luxurious upgrade since 2013, and may even change the history of the entire team.
After Durant returns from injury, the best point guard and best small forward in the Eastern Conference will lead the Nets on the right track. It is entirely possible for them to break through the encirclement of the Bucks and Raptors and reach the finals.
Durant will usher in the third team of his career next season and officially enter the NBA Eastern Division. This is a very important decision.
Since he signed a four-year 164 million maximum salary contract with the Nets, he is likely to retire with the Nets eventually.
