Was DeAndre Jordan in the right to spurn Dallas?
Tuesday September 1st, 2015

Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has parted ways with agents Dan Fegan and Jarinn Akana of Relativity Sports, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

Jordan cut ties with Fegan and Akana soon after the NBA fined the Clippers $250,000 on Aug. 25 for breaking the league's anti-circumvention regulations in pursuit of Jordan's re-signing earlier this summer.

During the Clippers' courtship of Jordan this off-season, team officials met with the center on July 2 to present opportunities to him involving potential third-party endorsements. 

The next day, Jordan, 27, agreed to sign with the Dallas Mavericks, but later changed his mind and returned to the Clippers.

The NBA ultimately concluded that Los Angeles' presentation to Jordan did not have an impact on his decision to re-sign with the team, but did not excuse the team's violation of the league rule.

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Tim MacMahon reported in July that the relationship between Jordan and his agents took a turn for the worse after Jordan's deal with the Mavericks fell through. Jordan reportedly did not allow Fegan into his home on the night of his re-signing with Los Angeles.

Despite the rift, the star center still had to pay Relativity Sports 4% of his four-year, $87.6 million contract with the Clippers.

Jordan has now left three different agencies in his seven NBA seasons.
