In addition to Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the Brooklyn Nets have reportedly signed DeAndre Jordan to a four-year, $40 million deal, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
Irving and Durant both took less than the max to allow Jordan to make an annual salary of $10 million, Wojnarowski added.

Jordan split the 2018-19 season with the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks. He averaged 11.0 points, 13.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks over 69 games with the two teams.
Jordan finished third in the league in rebounding, trailing only Andre Drummond (15.6) and Joel Embiid (13.6).
Jordan isn't the player he once was, but he's still a solid rim-runner, a strong rebounder and a capable rim protector. He will likely compete with Jarrett Allen, who the Nets selected with the No. 22 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, for a starting spot next season.
Players can negotiate agreements with teams on July 1st but contracts can't be officially signed until the new league year begins on July 7.
