Dallas Mavericks Working On DeAndre Jordan Trade

Adjust Comment Print

The Mavericks, along with every other team, would have the rights to negotiate with Jordan as of 11:59 p.m. Friday if the opt-out becomes final.

Jordan's field goal percentage dipped below 70 per cent for the first time in three seasons a year ago, but part of that could be due to the departure of point guard Chris Paul.

This may sound like a familiar story to Mavs fans.

Dallas never meant to sign Jordan long-term, and he was fine with that.

Teams and players can not formally sign contracts until July 6.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban refused to accept an apology from Jordan after the reversal, but later said he was moving on and never ruled out acquiring a player despite what was seen as a betrayal.

All appears to be forgiven.

The Clippers management team of Jerry West and Lawrence Frank isn't expected to pursue top-tier free agents such as LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Paul George of the Oklahoma City Thunder, DeMarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans or Tyreke Evans of the Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavs have created a massive amount of cap space for the center. Jordan, who will turn 30 next month, could also decline the option and become an unrestricted free agent.

If the Clippers are active starting Saturday, most likely they'll be in search of forwards.

On Tuesday, the Clippers traded guard Austin Rivers to the Washington Wizards for center Marcin Gortat. Hold your breath if you will, but Jordan will officially join the Mavericks on July 6.

After not exercising his player option for the 2018-19 season, Jordan was able to explore the market once again to find a situation that made the best use of his talents.
