Report: DeAndre Jordan 'torn' on signing with Clippers or Mavericks

Friday July 3rd, 2015

Unrestricted free agent center DeAndre Jordan is “torn” and remains “50-50” on choosing between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks, reports Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski.

According to the report, Jordan met with Clippers head coach/president of basketball operations Doc Rivers, owner Steve Ballmer and president of business operations Gillian Zucker on Thursday.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Jordan is not expected to make a decision in the next 24 hours.

The Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks were also reportedly interested in Jordan before the free agent period started.

NBA rumors: Free agency and trades

Jordan, 26, has spent the last seven seasons with the Clippers after they selected him in the second round of the 2008 NBA draft and had arguably his best season in 2014-15, leading the NBA in field goal percentage and rebounding, earning All-NBA third team honors.

He increased his scoring average during the playoffs, averaging 13.1 points during the team’s 14 postseason games.

Los Angeles can offer Jordan the most money in free agency, as he could potentially a sign a five-year deal worth approximately $110 million. If he were to sign anywhere else, he could receive a four-year maximum deal worth $81 million.
