While the Clippers wait for center DeAndre Jordan to decide on his player option for next season, they have given his representative permission to speak with the Dallas Mavericks about a trade, according to several National Basketball Association executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Jordan, who turns 30 on July 21, averaged 12.0 points, 15.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.9 blocked shots in 77 games last season, all starts. 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.
If Jordan decides to opt in, Dallas can trade for him before free agency begins on Sunday at 12:01 a.m. Stein reports that veteran swingman Wes Matthews and his $18.7 million contract will likely be the centerpiece of any offer.
After getting word that Jordan was wavering on his decision to sign with Dallas, former teammate Blake Griffin and coach Doc Rivers were part of a Clippers contingent that went to Jordan's house in his native Houston and stayed with him until the contract was official.
Meanwhile, the Clippers will move on from the only center they have known since 2008.
