LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) Kevin Durant is going from the west coast to the east coast and will play for the Brooklyn Nets. The deal is reportedly to be a 4-year contract worth $164 million. The 2-time NBA Finals MVP could have stayed with Golden State, who according to the New York Times, was ready to offer Durant a 5-year $221 million max deal.
It is quite possible Durant will miss the majority of the upcoming season after rupturing his right Achilles tendon in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
Durant, a 10-time All-Star, just completed his 12th NBA season and now goes to a Nets team which has been mediocre at best. Brooklyn finished 42-40 this season and lost in the first round of the playoffs
