NBA transfer: Massive blockbusters are 'dominating'

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving went to the Brooklyn Nets as two of the many cult transfers of the American professional basketball tournament on July 1st.

The Brooklyn Nets is considered the most successful team on the opening day of the NBA transfer market. On the same day, the New York team obtained the signature of All-Star duo Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. The Brooklyn Nets will cost US $305 million over the next four years to pay the two superstars.

Specifically, Kevin Durant will receive $164 million for four years at the new team. Earlier, the 30-year-old star rejected the $220 million five-year offer of the former club Golden State Warriors.

Kevin Durant, with a tendon rupture injury encountered in the NBA finals last season, will almost sit out the first season at the Nets. The two-time Finals MVP player with Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan and Garrett Temple are four stars joining the Barclays Center team from 2019-2020.

After letting Kevin Durant leave, Golden State Warriors received the opposite D'Angelo Russell defender. The former Brooklyn Nets defender nodded to a salary agreement worth $117.3 million in four years. Besides, the former NBA champion also kept Klay Thompson at $190 million for five years. Klay Thompson was supposed to have a maximum contract (220 million for five years), if not for an appointment with the All-NBA squad last season.

The most serious contract on the first day of the transfer market was Damian Lillard. The All-Star defender, with his stay at the Portland Trail Blazers, will add $196 million over the next five years.

Only on the opening day of the NBA transfer market, 50 free players found a stop. An estimated 30 NBA teams have spent three billion dollars on new contracts. Other outstanding deals were Jimmy Butler to Miami Heat, Al Horford to the Philadelphia 76ers or Kemba Walker to sign with the Boston Celtics. Kemba Walker, like Kevin Durant, rejected the super-maximum contract with the old club Charlotte Hornets, to receive $141 million in salary for four years at the Boston Celtics.
