Cavaliers still talking DeAndre Jordan trade with Clippers

Teams shifting focus out of trade market and into buyout possibilities

The Clippers have been intent on getting back at least one first-round pick for Jordan, but maybe the Cavs have convinced another team to come to the table. Franchises such as the Portland Trail Blazers, Houston Rockets, and even the Milwaukee Bucks have all shown interest in trading for the 6'11 big man.

Since Jordan can leave for nothing as a free agent in July, the Clippers may regret the decision to keep him. Clippers sources later told Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times that the team wasn't actively shopping Jordan. As ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Bobby Marks outlined, the cap explosion of 2016 - when teams spent frivolously because of an abundance of new TV money - and the near-flattening of it thereafter, has left very few teams with cap space. The Cavs desperately need to make an addition if they want any chance of winning a championship, and making it to a fourth straight NBA Finals is far from a guarantee. He's an elite rebounder and finisher around the basket, but possesses few of the other skills teams around the National Basketball Association covet in players - shooting, passing, the ability to maneuver off the dribble.

Withers took to Twitter to reveal the hilarious conversation, saying, "Asked one of the #Cavs how much DeAndre Jordan could help right now and he said 'Montell Jordan could help us right now'". Of course, the Cavaliers own the Brooklyn Nets' first-round draft pick this year courtesy of the Kyrie Irving-Isaiah Thomas trade with the Boston Celtics, but Cleveland has appeared reluctant to part with the selection. He may not make more than that option this summer, and if he doesn't, he may stay on a middling Clippers team until the end of the season.
