Kyrie Irving free agency news: Guard will join Kevin Durant, DeAndre Jordan on Nets

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving

Irving is coming off a season where he averaged 23.8 points, 6.9 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game.

The Nets moved quickly to secure some big names in free agency.

Shortly after Kevin Durant’s move to Brooklyn was reported, an ESPN report stated that Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan will join the two-time Finals MVP, as well.

The Nets have been eyeing Irving and had a four-year, $141 million deal ready for the six-time NBA All-Star.

Brooklyn made the move official Sunday.

Irving is coming off a season where he averaged 23.8 points, 6.9 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game for the Celtics.

The Celtics went 49-33 in the regular season and were eliminated by the Bucks in the Eastern Conference semifinals, 4-1.

Irving opted out of his deal with the team after a number of reports surfaced about turmoil that Boston faced last year and how Irving was unhappy living in the city.
