Clippers vice president and head coach Doc Rivers said the team will offer DeAndre Jordan a max contract.
While Jordan has said he'll test open market and reportedly has some issues with Chris Paul, it may be tough for him to pass up the extra dollars that the Clippers can offer. Jordan can make around $109 million over five years with the Clips, while other teams will only be able to offer him $81 million over four years. It's no sure thing that Jordan stays with the Clippers, but this makes it all the more likely he won't be wearing a new uniform next season. May 21 - 11:11 AM

Clippers' reserve guard Dahntay Jones said that there is no beef between Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan.

"Guys fight and argue on the court, but that's just the emotion of the game," Jones said. "People want to blow things out of proportion. Those guys are brothers, man. They sit with each other on the plane, on the bus. If you don't like a guy you stay away from him." The extra year and money the Clippers can offer DeAndre tilt the odds in their favor to retain his services, and this is a story we'll be following very closely this offseason.

Team vice president and head coach Doc Rivers said the Los Angeles Clippers are committed to re-signing DeAndre Jordan.

Jordan will have no shortage of suitors as an unrestricted free agent this summer, but Rivers said the team will do what they can to keep the big man. "We don’t need to go and get a max player, except for the one we have," Rivers said. "DJ loves it here. We know that, but you can’t take that for granted. There’s going to be a lot of teams [that want him], and if they’re not, there are a lot of dumb teams out there. There’s going to be a lot of teams coming after him that have money." The likely scenario here is that Jordan accepts a max contract with the Clippers, but we'll keep an eye out for any curveballs.

There is "a growing schism between [DeAndre] Jordan and point guard Chris Paul" and it may contribute to Jordan's decision to stay or go as a free agent, according to FOX Sports' Bill Reiter.

The report adds, "Paul's well-known edginess and drive ground on Jordan's nerves for much of the year." It also says the Mavs are in the mix to land Jordan. Without CP3, Jordan was not able to do much as an offensive weapon outside of putbacks, so not wanting to be with him wouldn't be a basketball decision. The Clippers are going to offer him a max deal and are still the heavy favorites to land DJ.

DeAndre Jordan is seeking a five-year max deal in free agency this offseason, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Per Wojnarowski, "it'll take a five-year, $100 million max contract to re-sign him," and Woj notes that the Mavericks will be "chief among several significant suitors" for the young center in a market that also includes the Lakers. There are only a handful of teams that can realistically commit that kind of money to Jordan, and his market may not be as robust as it's being painted to be currently. USA Today's Sam Amick reports that "there have long been rumblings that Jordan is eager to step into a new situation, one where he's not always perceived as the third fiddle." We'll see about that. That's a good role for Jordan. The Clippers are prepared to do whatever it takes to re-sign him, and per ESPN Los Angeles, that includes offering a maximum contract. Doc Rivers called retaining DJ his top offseason priority.
May 18 - 9:27 AM

The Clippers' offseason priority is re-signing unrestricted free agent DeAndre Jordan, according to Doc Rivers.

DeAndre had 16 points, 17 rebounds, four steals, three blocks and one turnover in 39 minutes during Sunday's road loss, the latest reminder of his immense importance to the Clippers' future. Jordan, Austin Rivers and Glen Davis are the only regular rotation players without contracts for 2015-16, so Rivers and the front office should make a full-court press to retain their star center, even if it results in a huge luxury-tax bill.
May 17 - 7:32 PM

DeAndre Jordan was intentionally fouled all night long on Sunday, going 14-of-34 from the FT line to finish with 26 points, 17 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers in 30 minutes.

Rockets coach Kevin McHale began the Hack-a-Jordan strategy just three minutes into the game, and Jordan set a Clippers franchise record for most playoff FT attempts with four minutes left in the first half. A playoff series featuring DeAndre and Dwight Howard is an obvious lightning-rod for debate about intentional fouls and the NBA will examine potential rule changes this summer, but it's far from certain that they'll move to eliminate it. The Clippers led by six points at halftime despite the strategy, and they were dominant with McHale eschewing the 'Hack' strategy in the second half.
May 10 - 11:58 PM

According to ESPN, DeAndre Jordan would be "extremely interested" in joining the Mavericks this summer.

Mavericks general manager Mark Cuban has never been shy about trying to improve his team, and it is already known that they will be pursuing LaMarcus Aldridge very hard in the summer as well. Dirk Nowitzki isn't getting any younger, so we would expect Dallas to aggressively pursue another star player to lighten Nowitzki's workload. To be clear, Tyson Chandler would almost certainly be forced to leave if Jordan heads to Dallas, so this will be one of the more interesting stories to follow this summer.

DeAndre Jordan had 21 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks during Tuesday's Game 5 loss -- he was intentionally fouled throughout the third quarter and finished 7-of-16 at the FT line.

Doc Rivers was more concerned about the fouls called on his own players in Game 5, saying afterward, "I thought we got some tough calls tonight. Brutal calls." There were some bad calls against the Clippers, and a critical tip-in by DeAndre was legitimately negated by offensive interference, but they'll need a short memory with an elimination game looming in San Antonio on Thursday.
Apr 29 - 2:40 AM

DeAndre Jordan made 7-of-10 from the field and 6-of-17 from the line for 20 points against the Spurs on Wednesday with 15 boards and three blocks in 44 minutes.

The Hack-A-Jordan was on tonight and it obviously worked for the Spurs. Jordan was struggling from the line so much that coach Doc Rivers had to take him out for a little while. Expect the Spurs to continue hacking Jordan throughout the series. Besides that, his defense has been great and he had a terrific block on Tim Duncan down the stretch, too.
Apr 23 - 1:53 AM

DeAndre Jordan attempted 12 free throws vs. the Spurs on Sunday, making five of them to finish with nine points, 14 rebounds and four blocks in 38 minutes.

Gregg Popovich isn't shy about intentionally fouling Jordan -- he did it in February and Jordan finished just 10-of-28 at the line. The horrendous FT shooting is juxtaposed with his historically-excellent 71.0 percent field goal average this season, which ranks No. 2 all-time in the NBA behind only Wilt Chamberlain. He's a matchup problem for the Spurs, to say the least.
Apr 20 - 2:03 AM

DeAndre Jordan expects to spend plenty of time at the free throw line against the Spurs, but said that he wasn't worried about it.

"It’s happened all season, and I feel like a lot of the games that they’ve done it we’ve won," Jordan said in regards to teams intentionally putting him at the foul line. "I’m not really worried about it. When it does happen, which I know it will, I’ll just go to the line and shoot the basketball. It’s not something that I’m dreading, but I’m prepared for it. I’m ready." Despite shooting just 39.7 percent from the line this season, the Clippers are 9-0 when he shoots at least 14 free throws.
Apr 19 - 11:19 AM

DeAndre Jordan made 6-of-7 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for 16 points with 16 boards, three steals and two blocks.

He's not supposed to be this good from the line. In fact, he hasn't made over 70 percent from the line with at least three attempts in any game in 2015 before tonight. Jordan's fantasy owners shouldn't care by now thanks to the boards, field goal percentage and blocks.
Apr 12 - 1:11 AM

DeAndre Jordan reeled in 17 rebounds during Tuesday's narrow victory, adding eight points and three blocks without any assists or steals.

He made 4-of-5 field goals and missed both of his free throws in a perfectly customary performance. Jordan would be the favorite for Defensive Player of the Year if it weren't for a certain Spurs' small forward.
Apr 8 - 1:27 AM

DeAndre Jordan grabbed 22 boards against the Nuggets on Saturday, adding 14 points, two assists and three blocks in 34 minutes.

The Nuggets tested Jordan's free throw shooting in this one, but he responded by going a respectable 8-of-14 from the line. Jordan may always be a liability due to his foul shooting, but his elite production in boards, blocks and FG percentage makes him a very exciting player to own.
