Report: Warriors to explore Jordan free agent chances

Publish date:

Despite knowing it's a long shot to land him, the Golden State Warriors will at least explore their free agent chances with center DeAndre Jordan, according to a report from the New York Times.

Jordan opted out of his $24.1 million player option for 2018-19 with the Los Angeles Clippers and is a unrestricted free agent.

For Jordan to sign with the Warriors, he would have to take a deal starting at the taxpayer mid-level exception of $5.3 million.

The Dallas Mavericks still remain as the frontrunner to sign Jordan.

Jordan had another productive season during the 2017-18 campaign. The big man averaged 12.0 points and 15.2 rebounds in 77 games while shooting 64.5 percent from the field.
