The Knicks reportedly targeted both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in free agency, but the two All-Stars will reportedly suit up for the crosstown Brooklyn Nets instead.

Irving reportedly agreed to a four-year, $141 million deal with the Nets while Kevin Durant confirmed that he’s going to sign with Brooklyn.

Knicks owner James Dolan reportedly wasn’t prepared to offer Durant a max deal after he suffered an Achilles tear in the NBA Finals.
