Kevin Durant is planning to sign a four-year deal worth $164 million with the Brooklyn Nets, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports first strongly suggested Durant's decision Sunday afternoon.

Durant will be joining Kyrie Irving, who will also sign with the Nets for four years, per multiple reports. Free agent center DeAndre Jordan will also sign with the Nets.

Durant is expected to miss all of next season with a ruptured Achilles, suffered in the NBA Finals with the Golden State Warriors.

Durant, 30, spent three seasons with the Warriors, advancing to the Finals each time and winning three championships.

He averaged 26.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 78 games this past season.
