2021 NBA free agency: What Kevin Durant's extension means for the Nets' future

What does Kevin Durant's extension mean for him and the Brooklyn Nets?

Durant broke the news Friday on his own Boardroom website that he has agreed to sign a four-year, $198 million contract extension to his current deal, which could have allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer by declining a player option.

The Nets will also have the ability this summer to extend the contracts of their other two stars, James Harden and Kyrie Irving. Those extensions are the biggest decisions in an offseason that has seen Brooklyn tinker around the edges of a roster that appeared headed for the NBA Finals before Harden and Irving both suffered injuries during a second-round loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

So what does Durant signing on long term mean for the Nets? Let's take a look.
