DeAndre Jordan Has Destination In Mind

DeAndre Jordan to the Mavericks? Let's go back to the emoji-filled day that blew up NBA Twitter

Jordan and Dallas were close to joining forces in 2015 when the Texas A&M product committed to signing a deal with the Mavs as a free-agent before going back to the Clippers on a four-year, $87.6 million contract.

Another scenario is him opting in to his deal for the objective of a trade, and this situation was explained Tuesday on Twitter by Marc Stein of the New York Times.

DeAndre Jordan has been with the Clippers his entire career, but he could make a decision this summer that would have him exploring somewhere outside of Los Angeles in his future.

While the Mavericks have apparent interest in Jordan, their fanbase may be another story.

If Jordan decides to pass on the option, Dallas would be forced to try to sign him in free agency. It appears that the Clippers are motivated to move Jordan, making that even more clear with the acquisition of Marcin Gortat from the Washington Wizards on Tuesday. Dallas has been searching for a big man for the past couple years and they finally have their sights set on one.

Jordan would anchor a young, dynamic team that contains Dennis Smith Jr., Luka Doncic, and Harrison Barnes.

Jordan, who has spent all 10 of his National Basketball Association seasons with the Clippers, averaged 12 points and 15.2 rebounds per game in 2017-18.

With that said, where can Jordan go if the Clippers are no longer interested in his services?

The All-Star, however, will have a say in the matter if the two teams come to terms on a deal.
