Yahoo! Sports Marc J. Spears first reported the news, and added that the announcement is expected to take place around 6 p.m. ET. Spears reported that Jordan informed Mavericks' coach Rick Carlisle and owner Mark Cuban just after 4 p.m. ET that he is coming to Dallas.
ESPN's Marc Stein reported that the terms of the deal will be for four years and in excess of $80 million. It will be a maximum contract.
He was reportedly impressed when Mavericks veteran Dirk Nowitzki interrupted his vacation to fly to Los Angeles for a meeting with Jordan, something that none of Jordan's Clippers teammates managed, the Los AngelesTimes said.
The 26-year-old Jordan averaged 11.5 points and a league-leading 15.0 rebounds per game in 2014–15.
