Dallas Mavericks Working On DeAndre Jordan Trade

DeAndre Jordan

And amid reports that National Basketball Association champions the Golden State Warriors could make an unlikely bid for Jordan, the Clippers seemingly confirmed his imminent exit.

Remember, Jordan can't officially sign until July 6.

Jordan averaged 12 points and a career-high 15.2 rebounds per game this past season. Though Golden State had a glut of centers on their roster last season, Zaza Pachulia, David West, JaVale McGee, and Kevon Looney are all scheduled to hit free agency.

Jordan had until 11:59 p.m. ET Friday to make a decision on whether to exercise the option.

Jordan, perhaps in a playful nod to the wild day when he backed out of his verbal commitment to sign with Dallas in 2015, seemingly confirmed this commitment to the Mavs by tweeting an emoji of a smiley face with a cowboy hat. They are expected to be major players in 2019, though, when they're projected to have up to $50 million in order to sign free agents in a class that's expected to be deeper and more talented than this one. Marc Stein of the New York Times reported Dallas was making him their top priority after he declined his option with the Clippers. Smith Jr. and Doncic can be the kick starters for a run and gun offense.

During the 2016 presidential campaign Trump said he would seek to place a "pro-life justice on the court". Wade case, which established a woman's right to an abortion, nor would he discuss gay rights with them.

The deal happened and Dallas Mavericks fans are excited, for good reason.

If we had to bet, Jordan will likely take the big payday, and Dallas will finally have their man.

Jordan's field goal percentage dipped below 70 per cent for the first time in three seasons previous year, but part of that could be due to the departure of point guard Chris Paul.

Now three years later, Jordan may once again be on track to join famous owner Mark Cuban in Dallas.
