Kevin Durant’s brother hints Nets will sign Serge Ibaka

The Brooklyn Nets are expected to be busy when NBA free agency opens up. They are looking to add talent around Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and they may have a big name lined up already. That name could be free agent big man Serge Ibaka.

Durant’s brother, Tony Durant, hinted that the Nets are set to sign Ibaka when free agency opens.

Granted, until we hear this from Adrian Wojnarowski or Shams Charania, we have to take everything with a grain of salt. However, this would make a ton of sense and would not be much of a surprise.

Ibaka and Durant were very close during their tenure together with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Also, the Nets could use some help in the front-court.

Last season with the Toronto Raptors, Ibaka ended up averaging 15.4 points per game to go along with 8.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and just under a block per game. He shot 51.2 percent from the floor and knocked down 38.5 percent of his three-point attempts.

Brooklyn would be very wise to go all-out to acquire Ibaka in free agency. He can stretch the floor, defend the rim, and does not need the ball in his hands. Depending on the price tag he has, this deal would be perfect.

Durant’s brother may have some inside sources. There’s no doubt that if Ibaka was heading to Brooklyn, that he would have told Kevin Durant his intentions.

Expect to hear more about this situation in the very near future. Free agency is set to open and the Nets might very well land Serge Ibaka.
