Update 6:48 p.m.: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that DeAndre Jordan has actually signed a 4-year, $43 million offer sheet with Golden State.

Original post: Reports emerged on Sunday that the Golden State Warriors would be pursuing center DeAndre Jordan, and, according to Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com, were planning to sign the Los Angeles Clippers' restricted free agent to an offer sheet worth $40 million over four years.  Sunday afternoon, the Warriors made the necessary moves to clear salary cap space to allow that offer, according to Ken Berg of CBS Sports.

Bell, released under the amnesty clause allowed by the new CBA, was told by the team to remain in Michigan, where he was arrested Thursday when he showed up intoxicated for a hearing on a previous drunk driving charge. Jordan is viewed as a shot-blocker and rebounder; in 2010-11 with the Clippers, he averaged 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocked shots per game in, on average, 25.6 minutes played.
