Coveted free agent center DeAndre JordanÂ agreed to a four-year, $80 million dealÂ with the Dallas Mavericks last week after seven seasons with the Clippers â€” but Jordan only gave theÂ Mavericks a verbal commitment, and the Clippers are going all out to try and change Jordanâ€™s mind.
Jordan isÂ expected to meetÂ with Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, coach Doc Rivers, Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick in Houston on Wednesday to discuss a potential return to the Clippers. Redick publiclyÂ blasted the ClippersÂ for failing to re-sign Jordan, giving the team a free agency grade of â€śF-minus.â€ť
According to ESPN, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has flown to Houston as well, in what has become a bizarre race for Jordanâ€™s signature. Mavericks starÂ Chandler Parsons tweeted a plane emoji Wednesday, hinting that he is also part of the Mavericksâ€™ contingent that will try to woo Jordan.
Kobe Bryant wins! :)
