Kevin Durant is leaving Oklahoma City to join the Golden State Warriors.

The NBA’s former MVP and four-time scoring champion announced his decision Monday morning to play alongside Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson on a loaded Warriors team that set the league’s regular season victory record last season.

ESPN reports the two-year deal is worth $54.3 million.

The Thunder have traded forward Serge Ibaka to the Orlando Magic for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and the newly drafted Domantas Sabonis, perhaps tweaking the roster to appeal to soon-to-be free agent Kevin Durant.

Ibaka has been one of the league's top defenders, but his offensive production has dipped. He averaged career highs of 15.1 points and 8.8 rebounds in 2013-14, but those numbers fell to 12.6 points and 6.8 rebounds last season.

Oladipo fills Oklahoma City's need for a two-way shooting guard. He averaged 16 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists last season.

Stephen Curry knocked down yet another 3-pointer in the waning moments, pulled his jersey up into his mouth and yelled to the rafters in triumph once more.

A special, record-setting season saved for the defending champs, with a memorable comeback added to the long list of accomplishments.

Splash Brothers Curry and Klay Thompson carried the 73-win Warriors right back to the NBA Finals, as Golden State rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-88 on Monday night in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals.
