Shortly after Wojnarowski 's report, Durant confirmed via his sports business network, The Boardroom.
Sources: Kyrie Irving has agreed to a four-year, $142M deal with Brooklyn. Fourth-year player option.
It never felt as true as it does right now. It looks like the Nets will not only end up snagging the biggest offseason prize in Durant, but they have also secured the services of Irving.

“Two max slots”
KD and Kyrie made their decision a long time ago.
Meanwhile, Durant hasn't had too much to add to the announcement. On Monday, he posted a black-and-white photo of him riding a bike with a vague caption.
"I wandered everywhere, through cities and countries wide. And everywhere I went, the universe was on my side," it says.
