Report: Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving take less than max to give Nets money for DeAndre Jordan

The Brooklyn Nets were already one of the big winners of NBA free agency with the reported additions of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Then the team added another star.

Veteran center DeAndre Jordan will join the Nets in free agency, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal is reportedly worth four years, $40 million. Interestingly enough, Durant and Irving also seem to have taken less than the max to ensure the Nets could accommodate Jordan.

Jordan just finished up a season split between the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks in which he averaged 11.0 points, 13.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. He’ll figure to give the Nets another imposing presence in the paint alongside Jarrett Allen.

In addition to Jordan, shooting guard Garrett Temple will head to Brooklyn.

Temple averaged 7.8 points per game with the Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers last year.
