With an agreement to give Caris LeVert a three-year, $52.5 million extension, the Nets have passed $400 million in contractual commitments doled out this summer.

Here are the biggest deals:

Kevin Durant: four years and $164 million with the last year a player option.

Kyrie Irving: four years and $141 million with the last year a player option.

Caris LeVert: three years and $52.5 million beginning in 2020-21.

DeAndre Jordan: four years and $40 million.

Garrett Temple: two years and $10 million (Room exception) with the second year a team option.

The Nets have also signed Wilson Chandler, David Nwaba, Nicolas Claxton and Theo Pinson to minimum deals totaling another $7 million. Henry Ellenson has also been signed to a two-way deal.

The free agency deals signed by Durant, Irving and Jordan are larger than any previous deal in Nets history, surpassing the $36 million contract given Jeremy Lin in 2016.

LeVert’s extension is the sixth largest extension in team history, behind $100 million deals given Jason Kidd and Deron Williams; a $75 million extension signed by Richard Jefferson; a $65 million extension signed by Vince Carter and a $61 million deal signed by Brook Lopez.
