DeAndre Jordan opts out of deal with Clippers

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. The Mavs wanted Jordan badly in free agency in 2015, and well, you remember how that turned out.

Three years later, Jordan once again has a chance to end up in Texas. Adding Jordan alongside Dennis Smith Jr. and Yogi Ferrell will hopefully make the team more competitive. He ended up signing a four-year, $87 contract with the Clippers. He now ranks fifth in National Basketball Association history in games played (1,471), third in minutes (50,573) and sixth in points (31,187), leading LeBron James by 149 points for the active National Basketball Association lead. He averaged 12 points and 15.2 rebounds in 2017-18.

The German big man told the team's official website in May that he wouldn't rule out playing the 2019-20 campaign either, as he plans to take it year-by-year. Jordan can't officially sign a new contract until the moratorium ends next Friday, however.

READ: Is DeAndre Jordan even a good idea for the Mavs? Dallas now has $27 million in salary cap space, and created even more wiggle room by declining Dirk Nowitzki's $5 million team option, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times. He had reportedly been considering accepting the player option in an effort to facilitate a trade to Dallas.

The 29-year-old Houston native was originally set to sign with the Mavericks 3 years prior before backing out and re-signing with LA.

Both the Clippers and Mavericks are rebuilding their rosters.
