DeAndre Jordan opts out of deal with Clippers

Jordan played all 10 seasons of his career with the Clippers.

Per the Times, the Mavericks did not want to surrender draft compensation in a trade, preferring to pursue Jordan via free agency. Dallas is going to try to sign him to a deal (this time it will go better than a couple of years ago).

However, Jordan won't be a free agent for long. Instead, he's anticipated to sign a new deal worth around $4.4 million or $600,000 cheaper than what he could've made if the Mavs didn't cancel his initial salary for next season.

It appears that the both sides have moved on from the experience. Jordan has a deadline of Friday at 11:59 p.m. ET to decide whether he'll opt into the final year of his contract with the Clippers, worth a reported $24.1 million.

That said, Dirk Nowitzki is not expected to head somewhere else.

Jordan will fill a big need for the Mavericks.

In 77 games last season with the Clippers, Jordan averaged 12.0 points per game to go along with a career-high 15.2 rebounds.

Centers in Rick Carlisle's offense have done well for most part.

Three years later, Jordan once again has a chance to end up in Texas.

If Ryan Spalding, Kostas Antetokounmpo or Duop Reath get pushed up from the Summer League roster, Jordan can mentor the young forwards as the develop their game in the National Basketball Association.
