It’s offical! KD and Kyrie will ball together this fall in Brooklyn! Free-agent All-NBA star Kevin Durant plans to sign a four-year contract worth up to $164 million to play for the Brooklyn Nets.

Durant will join free agents Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan, who also plan to sign with the franchise. Players can officially sign their contracts starting July 6.

Irving will sign for four years in a deal worth up to $141 million, league sources said, while Jordan has agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal, Excel Sports agent Jeff Schwartz told ESPN on Sunday.

As part of the agreement to sign with Brooklyn, Durant and Irving are taking less than the max — forgoing between $4 million and $5 million each annually — to allow Jordan to get to $10 million a year, league sources said.

To sign Jordan, Irving would have to commit to a four-year, $122 million contract. In the case of Durant, the injured forward’s contract would come in at $137 million. However, Brooklyn can structure Durant’s and Irving’s contracts to include 15% of unlikely bonuses in each year. If the bonuses are reached, both players would recoup the lost earnings, getting Durant back to $164 million and Irving back to $141 million.
