After reportedly landing commitments from Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the Brooklyn Nets are set to sign DeAndre Jordan as well, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweets.
Jordan will sign a four-year pact worth $40 million, Woj reports in a subsequent tweet. That’s a figure considerably higher than the veteran minimum that most cap prognosticators were projecting but Irving and Durant will reportedly take less than the max in order to make it a possibility.
Jordan was part of the mid-season trade that sent Kristaps Porzingis from the Knicks the Mavs last February and played the role of veteran mentor for the young roster. Despite that, the 30-year-old still averaged 10.9 points and 11.4 rebounds per game for the Knicks and will have plenty of tank to help the Nets.
