The Brooklyn Nets took the NBA world by storm on Sunday after coming to deals with three of the most coveted free agents on the market this offseason.

The Nets have reportedly come to agreements to sign forward Kevin Durant, guard Kyrie Irving, and center DeAndre Jordan, making Brooklyn the center of attention throughout the NBA.

Durant will join the Nets after being one of the NBA’s brightest stars over the past decade. The high-scoring shooter won the MVP Award in 2014, has won two NBA Championships and two NBA Finals MVPs, and will become a crucial piece for the Nets once his Achilles tear has healed.

Irving, for his part, is a six-time NBA All-Star who won a championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers back in 2016. A former #1 overall pick, he has averaged 22.2 points per game in his NBA career on 46% shooting. He was one of the most coveted free agents on the market this year and for good reason.

Finally, the third edition of the Nets’ new “Big 3” is DeAndre Jordan. One of the most quality centers in the league and a veteran at 30 years old, he has averaged double-digit rebounds for the past six seasons and is also considered an elite defensive centers.

The Nets’ new additions will propel them towards being one of the favorites in what is shaping up to be a highly competitive Eastern Conference next season.
