After we all witnessed the most transactional day in NBA history, dynamic duo Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are now officially Brooklyn Nets ballers.

The former Boston Celtics point guard landed a four-year, $141 million contract with the Nets and yesterday he signed his name on the dotted line to seal the deal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The New Jersey native - who grew up watching the Nets - always dreamed of one day playing for the organization, and now, here we are.

 

 

The new Nets baller was accompanied by his Roc Nation Sports agent Jay-Z, as well as Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks, and other Nets & Roc Nation Sports officials. Kyrie's former Duke teammate Josh Hairston was also in the mix:

 

 

By the way, KD is signed to Roc Nation Sports as well.

Needless to say, Kyrie Irving is ready for to embark on this new journey:

 

 

After the signing ceremony, Kyrie hit the party scene with Jay-Z, Beyonce, producer Swizz Beatz and his son, Kasseem Dean Jr. in Brooklyn:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fun times.

Meanwhile....

 

KD announced that he's changing his jersey number! He'll be wearing No. 7 with the Nets after wearing No. 35 with the Golden State Warriors. You'll recall, he signed four-year, $164 million contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

The two-time Finals MVP made the announcement via Twitter, posing a stylized image of his new jersey hanging in the Nets' locker room:

 

 

In another Twitter post by Thirty Five Ventures, a New York-based "business portfolio" co-founded by Durant and manager Rich Kleiman, he explained why he decided to make the swap.

"35 took me and my family from Seat Pleasant, MD and showed us the world," KD wrote. "But as I start this next chapter in my basketball life, the number I'll be wearing on my back is the number 7 next time you see me on the floor. One time Brooklyn."

Folks are excited to see Kyrie and KD hit the court together, but that likely won't happen until the 2020-21 NBA season. The small forward will likely miss the entire 2019-20 season after rupturing his Achilles during the NBA Finals.

As for another baller joining their new team:

 

Los Angeles Lakers player LeBron James has officially welcomed his new teammate, Anthony Davis.

The Los Angeles Lakers reached an agreement with the New Orleans Pelicans to gain forward Anthony Davis in exchange for three players and three first-round draft picks. The Lakers gave up Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and the three first round picks - including the No. 4 overall selection in the NBA draft - to the Pelicans.

With King James and Davis on the same team, they could possibly make the Lakers a contender for a championship next season.
