For five consecutive seasons from 2012-13 to 2016-17, Jordan led the National Basketball Association in field goal percentage and effective field goal percentage. Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and now Jordan are all now in different cities, while in Dallas, the team is preparing for their post -irk Nowitzki reality.

The 29-year-old was selected in the second round (No. 35 overall) in the 2008 draft.

Actually, he set a career-high with 15.2 rebounds per game this season in Los Angeles.

DeAndre Jordan #6 of the LA Clippers grabs the rebound against the Golden State Warriors on January 10, 2018 at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, California.

The 6-foot-11 Jordan has averaged at least 12 points each of the past three years.

Jordan and the Mavericks can begin free-agency discussions on Saturday at 9:01 p.m. PT and are expected to quickly come to an agreement.

In July 2015, he verbally agreed to join the Mavs on a four-year, $80 million contract during the moratorium period before contracts could be officially signed. Randle was given a $5.6-million qualifying offer by the Lakers earlier this week, which made him a restricted free agent. The Mavs have created a massive amount of cap space for the center. "Whether it's via free agency, whether it's via a trade, you're constantly looking for ways to improve the roster". He immediately becomes one of the best big men available in this year's free agent class.

Rivers might not be the last guard to depart the Clippers, though.

The deal happened and Dallas Mavericks fans are excited, for good reason. If he opted in, he would be in line to make a little more than $24.1 million this season.
