Dallas Mavericks Working On DeAndre Jordan Trade

The Dallas Mavericks are the heavy favorites to land Jordan, just a few years after he spurned Dallas at the last minute and re-signed with Los Angeles.

In the summer of 2015, Jordan verbally committed to signing a four-year deal with Dallas in free agency, but changed his mind shortly before the moratorium period ended.

The Dallas Mavericks on Friday night declined Dirk Nowitzki's $5 million team option for next season to make him a free agent and maximize their financial flexibility this off-season, according to two people familiar with the decision.

Jordan played all 10 seasons of his career with the Clippers.

Clippers center DeAndre Jordan will opt out of his deal and become a free agent Sunday, according to ESPN. Marc Stein of The New York Times reports that the Warriors will take a shot at DeAndre Jordan in free agency.

Obviously, a starting lineup of Jordan, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green would be flat-out ridiculous.

Mark Doss, a lawyer with the International Refugee Assistance Project, said the decision "leaves people in total uncertainty". It states that deciding who can and cannot enter our country does indeed fall within the realm of executive responsibility.

It was a mutual decision, with the Mavs planning to re-sign Nowitzki in July.

Jordan will fill a big need for the Mavericks.

In 77 games last season with the Clippers, Jordan averaged 12.0 points per game to go along with a career-high 15.2 rebounds. Smith Jr. and Doncic can be the kick starters for a run and gun offense.

Centers in Rick Carlisle's offense have done well for most part.

If Ryan Spalding, Kostas Antetokounmpo or Duop Reath get pushed up from the Summer League roster, Jordan can mentor the young forwards as the develop their game in the National Basketball Association.
