Two-time NBA champion Kevin Durant has officially announced his free agency decision, as he's signing with the Brooklyn Nets.

Durant, who won two championships during his time with the Golden State Warriors, was believed to have considered the Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks, as well.

The All-Star forward, who's dealing with a torn Achilles, will be joining Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn.

Durant has agreed to a four-year deal with Brooklyn.

The star forward announced his decision on his business page, The Boardroom.

"Kevin Durant has confirmed he will sign a max deal with the Brooklyn Nets when the free agency moratorium period ends on July 6th," the announcement read.

The Nets are also reportedly signing Irving and free agent center DeAndre Jordan.

This leaves Kawhi Leonard as the clear best free agent available. The reigning NBA Finals MVP is believed to be considering the Raptors, Lakers and Clippers.
