DeAndre Jordan reportedly 'leaning' toward return to Clippers

DeAndre Jordan reportedly ‘leaning’ toward return to Clippers

NBA free agents can officially sign with their team of choice on Thursday, July 9 and with many of the big fish already reportedly agreeing to contracts, there’s little mystery left.


That is until DeAndre Jordan reportedly got cold feet about his decision to leave the Los Angeles Clippers and join the Dallas Mavericks.

Jordan agreed to a four-year max deal worth $80 million with the Mavericks last week, but according to a report from ESPN’s Marc Stein Wednesday, the 26-year-old center is having second thoughts regarding that verbal commitment and “is increasingly ‘leaning’ toward a return to that drafted him, with the Clippers indeed optimistic that he will stay in L.A.”

The Mavericks (including Mark Cuban and super recruiter Chandler Parsons) and Clippers (including Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and JJ Redick) are all in Jordan’s native Houston for 11th-hour meetings to make their respective final pitches.
