DeAndre Jordan is set to close out his free agency meetings with the Knicks and Clippers on Thursday.
Jordan will give the Clippers his last meeting after meeting with the Knicks on Thursday and will presumably be choosing between the Clippers, Knicks, Mavericks, and Lakers. Jordan was said to be impressed by the Lakers presentation and the Mavericks were reported to be a frontrunner to land the big man, so we'll have to see if the Clippers and Knicks can change his mind. The 26-year-old will get a big-money deal wherever he signs, so his decision will likely hinge upon the basketball side of any presentation as his involvement in any future team's offense has reportedly been a sticking point for Jordan.

The Clippers have "rising concern" about their ability to retain DeAndre Jordan, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

L.A. was "confident" about their chances before the free-agent process began, but they apparently now feel their chances are "50-50." The Mavericks are the presumptive favorite to pry Jordan away from the Clippers, who would then be left scrambling for a starting-caliber center.

DeAndre Jordan concluded his meeting with the Lakers late on Sunday, spending approximately three hours with L.A.'s contingent.

LaMarcus Aldridge was unswayed by the Lakers' pitch earlier in the day and Jordan reportedly found them "somewhat underwhelming," so they'll be in a tough spot if both players take a pass. The Mavericks are believed to be his most likely destination but the Clippers will get the final chance to persuade him during a meeting on Thursday. We shouldn't have to wait much longer than 24 hours for his decision.

The Mavericks met with unrestricted free agent DeAndre Jordan for 4.5 hours.

The Mavs were not able to bring back Tyson Chandler, so they're going to be all in on Jordan here. He's from Texas, the Mavs can offer max money, and he would work nicely in coach Rick Carlisle's system.

The Lakers will meet with free agent DeAndre Jordan in L.A. on Wednesday.

Kobe Bryant was part of the contingent that pitched LaMarcus Aldridge but he won't join GM Mitch Kupchak, coach Byron Scott and others when they visit with Monroe and DJ. The Mavericks were the first team Jordan met with once free agency began, and the Clippers are his final scheduled meeting on Thursday evening, so the Lakers have plenty of competition for the First-Team All-Defensive center.

DeAndre Jordan will meet with the Mavericks on Wednesday morning, followed by meetings with the Lakers, Knicks and Clippers.

The Clips will get the last opportunity to sway Jordan on Thursday evening. They may need to convince him he'll get the larger offensive role he reportedly craves, which seems like a given with the other three teams he'll meet with.

The Clippers are "hopeful" that they can retain DeAndre Jordan, but if he signs with the Mavericks L.A. will reportedly try a sign-and-trade for Tyson Chandler.

This isn't a surprising report but it's contingent upon DJ first declaring that he wants to play in Dallas, which is far from certain. The Lakers are also making a push to clear enough cap space for both Jordan and LaMarcus Aldridge, though the financial acrobatics required makes it a dubious outcome.

DeAndre Jordan recently dined with coach Doc Rivers and actor Jamie Foxx in Malibu, and he attended an event in Santa Monica with Chris Paul.

The Clippers may balk at Jordan's desire for a lucrative four-year contract with a player option after three years, but they're obviously still trying to lure him back to L.A. His relationship with CP3 has been called into question lately, so their outing this week could "perhaps [be] the first step in Jordan and Paul's repairing a season-long strain." In addition to the Clips, DJ is scheduled to meet with the Lakers, Knicks and the potential front-runner Mavericks.

DeAndre Jordan is reportedly deciding between the Mavericks and the Clippers as an unrestricted free agent.

Jordan is reportedly looking for a four-year deal with a player option for the final season of the contract, which essentially nullifies the Clippers advantage in retaining him from a numbers perspective. Jordan would reportedly like to be more involved in the offense, and is sick of being the third wheel in Los Angeles behind Blake Griffin and Chris Paul. He has meetings scheduled with the Knicks, Lakers, Mavs, and Clippers, but the Mavs are currently believed to be the frontrunners for Jordan.

DeAndre Jordan is expected to meet with the Knicks this week, sources told ESPN.

Jordan is going to meet with the Knicks in Los Angeles, where Phil Jackson, Steve Mills and Coach Derek Fisher will all visit with the big man. New York is considered a "longshot" to land Jordan. Jordan will also meet with the Mavs, Lakers and Clippers.

The Mavericks are "widely considered the likeliest team" to persuade DeAndre Jordan to leave the Clippers in free agency, sources told ESPN Dallas.

It's a Dallas-based report, so consider that in your digestion. Sources also told ESPN Dallas that Jordan will meet with the Mavs, Clippers, Knicks and Lakers in free agency, so in addition to the two Los Angeles teams fighting for his services, both Dallas and New York will be involved as well. In other words: Jordan is about to get paid. The Bucks are "hoping" to land a meeting with Jordan, but that doesn't sound likely at this point. Most likely, it will come down to the Mavs and Clippers.

The Clippers, Lakers, Bucks and Mavericks are all set to meet with DeAndre Jordan at his home in Houston when free agency opens up on July 1.

The Clippers will be able to offer Jordan the most money during free agency, but according to NBA officials not authorized to speak publicly, a reported rift between Jordan and Chris Paul is real and could hurt the Clippers odds of resigning him this offseason. Jordan reportedly wants to be more involved in the offense and become an All-Star, and he feels that is not something that can happen with the Clippers. One of the alluring facets of Jordan's fantasy game is his ridiculous field goal percentage, but that could take a hit if he becomes more involved in the offense.
Jun 26 - 12:43 PM

Steve Ballmer implied that resigning DeAndre Jordan this offseason will be a priority for the Clippers, saying "We love D.J."

"You have arguably three of the best 20 to 25 guys in the NBA," Ballmer said of having Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Jordan on the roster. "You should be able to win it with three of the best 20 to 25 guys in the NBA. I don't think you'll find another team with three of the best 20 to 25 guys in the NBA." The Clippers will be able to offer Jordan an extra year and $20 million more than any other team during free agency, although he's sure to receive plenty of offers on the open market. It'll be interesting to see if the Clippers can retain their prized big man during free agency.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers stated on Thursday that Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan have a good relationship.

"I can put this to rest: [Paul and Jordan] get along great," Rivers said. "Clearly, like everybody, they don't get along all the time, and they don't get along with me all the time, either, by the way. I don't see that as an issue. I think all three, and I'm including Blake [Griffin] in this as well, understand how important the other guy is to them. Meaning, they all three need each other to win, and I think all three get that and all three know that and all three want to do it together. To me, that's the most important thing." The Clippers can offer Jordan an extra year and $20 million more than any other team this offseason, so from a numbers standpoint, the odds are in their favor of retaining his services.

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.
