Considering the fact that Jordan's contract will be up at the end of this year, and with the Clippers roster looking as uncompetitive as ever after trading away Blake Griffin to Detroit, it'd be fairly likely that Jordan would test the market if he was to remain in LA for the rest of the season. One of their top priorities is clearing space to give themselves the opportunity to pursue high-level free agents in the upcoming off-seasons. So, if the Cavs don't up their offer, getting a third team involved looks like the only way to get the deal done. Avery Bradley came over on an expiring contract, Boban Marjanovic is owed a little over $15 million for the next two seasons, and Tobias Harris is owed a similar amount over the same amount of time.
A trade for Jordan comes down to the risk someone is willing to take on him walking in the offseason.
