DeAndre Jordan opts out of deal with Clippers

DeAndre Jordan

In July 2015, he verbally agreed to join the Mavs on a four-year, $80 million contract during the moratorium period before contracts could be officially signed.

DeAndre Jordan is on the move for the first time in his career after agreeing to a deal with the Dallas Mavericks. The mechanism is different, but Jordan's goals are accomplished: he gets his money and his contract year, he gets to try again in the supposedly free agent-friendly summer of 2019, and he gets the flawless team to amplify his skills and raise his value. Instead, he's expected to remain a Maverick with the team looking to offer him a new deal, albeit a cheaper one, per Bobby Marks of ESPN via his colleague, Tim McMahon. For his career, the Texas A&M product is averaging 9.4 points, 10.7 rebounds and and 1.7 blocks.

This is Jordan's second turn at free agency.

Jordan is coming off another solid season in LA, averaging 12 points and 15.2 rebounds in 31.5 minutes per game.

The pole, in a time of one minute 30.029 seconds, was his third of the year and pushed his Formula One record to 75. We had a good vehicle in the race, but the outcome was not what we wanted. "We definitely needed it", Bottas said.

Jordan was due to make $24.1 million in the 2018-19 season. In 10 National Basketball Association seasons, all with the Clippers, he has career averages of 9.4 points, 10.7 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 1.7 blocks.

The big man was deliberating over the decision until Friday's deadline where he had to inform the franchise of his choice.

MAVS BOUND? DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers decides to test the free agency. Marc Stein of the New York Times reported Dallas was making him their top priority after he declined his option with the Clippers. This is likely Jordan's last chance to cash in on a max deal, so he's going to make it count.
