Clippers gauge interest in DeAndre Jordan trade, sources say

The LA Clippers have gauged the market on potentially trading All-Star defensive stalwart center DeAndre Jordan, league sources told ESPN.

Sources say the Clippers, in an exploratory fashion, have spoken to a few teams regarding the nine-year veteran.

One of the teams contacted was the Phoenix Suns, sources told ESPN. A proposal of Jordan in exchange for veteran center Tyson Chandler and the Suns' No. 4 pick in the 2017 NBA draft was discussed, sources said.


Dealing gets fast and furious as NBA draft nears

Superman got dealt -- again. The Lakers' point guard of the future is gone. The stage might be set for more unpredictable swaps as Thursday's draft day nears.

West: New Clippers gig 'last adventure' of life

NBA legend Jerry West helped the Lakers and Warriors to multiple championships during his time as an executive with both teams. Now, the man known as The Logo has expressed optimism for his new consultant role with the Clippers.

The Suns, however, are believed to have balked at the overture.

Should Clippers power forward Blake Griffin bolt during free agency next month, rival executives believe the Jordan relocation pursuit would intensify.

The Clippers, desperate for youth and athleticism, averaged as the oldest team in the league last season and are without a pick in the upcoming draft. The team, a source said, is expected to be aggressive in attempting to buy a second-round pick.

The Clippers were surveying the landscape on Jordan prior to the arrival of newly signed consultant Jerry West, but rival teams are of the belief that the big man still could be acquired should the appropriate package present itself.

Jordan, 28, has two years and $46 million remaining on his contract. The final year is a player option.

Chandler, 34, has two years and $26 million left on his deal.

They should trade Jordan to the Pacers for George. West will get him to stay. Lose Blake and re-sign Paul and Redick. Or lose Redick and re-sign Paul and Blake. Paul, Rivers, George and Blake is pretty good.
