DeAndre Jordan Reportedly Won't Be Dealt by Clippers at NBA Trade Deadline

Griffin, a former No. 1 overall pick, was a popular name linked to Boston in recent seasons leading up to his free agency last summer, but a source told Himmelsbach the Celtics never discussed a deal with the Clippers before they traded the All-Star power forward last week. National Basketball Association trade deadline day, and that means that we're about to be drowned in a wave of National Basketball Association moves in the next five or so hours.

The Los Angeles Clippers traded Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons last week in a stunning blockbuster, and various rumors suggest L.A. also could deal away DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams before Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Jordan has a $24 million player option next season that he seems likely to decline to become a free agent.

The Cavaliers also have fellow big man Tristan Thompson to dangle in any potential Jordan deal, but Thompson's value has dipped and he has two years and over $35 million remaining on his contract beyond this season.

For the December quarter, Disney reported net income of $4.42 billion and said revenue rose 3.8 percent to $15. 4 billion . Iger said the ESPN app will deliver "important new experiences and services" and that "the changes will be dramatic".

"From the Clippers' point of view, they don't want to take back long-term money on Jordan", Wojnarowski continued. Finally, Jordan's expiring contract was appealing to teams looking to clear cap space.

Acquiring Jordan will not be easy because of the Clippers' preference for a trade that can create financial flexibility, but it is worth a try for the Blazers because he is a significant upgrade over Jusuf Nurkić.

Additionally, plenty of contending teams can use a player with Jordan's rim protecting skills. The Cleveland Cavaliers, for example, offered their own first-round pick (not the Brooklyn Nets' coveted pick) and big contracts they're trying to dump to the Clippers for Jordan, according to USA Today.

Jordan may be wise to say he'll opt into his player option.
