Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 7/8/15

DeAndre Jordan‘s free agency has reportedly taken a left turn with the center now waffling on his initial decision to sign with the Mavericks, which in turn sets up a potential return to the Clippers. The 26-year-old has spent his entire seven years in the NBA with Los Angeles, and though there is a rumored rift between Jordan and point guard Chris Paul, the pull of remaining with the team may indeed prove too great. While it’s certainly understandable that Jordan would struggle with such a life-altering decision, backing out of an agreed upon deal with Dallas may not sit too well with many around the league.

This brings us to the question of the day: Which team should DeAndre Jordan ultimately sign with?

Should he stay true to the deal he agreed upon in principle with the Mavericks, or should he remain with the Clippers? Why should he choose that particular franchise? Which team offers Jordan the best chance to win over the life of his next contract? Which team is his particular skillset best suited for?

    I would say it depends on what happened. If he just changed his mind, that’s crappy. If it turns out that his agent mislead him then he should have the opportunity to change his mind. It’s his life and he hasn’t signed on the dotted line.

    • Eddie Scarito

      I don’t begrudge him the right to change his mind. It just looks bad either way. But in the end he has to make the best call for himself.

    He should be a Clipper. It’s a proven team getting better with the additions of Pierce and Stephenson, and the skill sets of Paul and Griffin complement DJ perfectly. It doesn’t make sense to go to a team without a point guard.

    • Chuck Myron

      Apparently, he agrees with you! The Clippers will be very good with Jordan back. But better than the Warriors, Spurs, or healthy Thunder? Tough to say.

  3. If he does go back it may have an interesting future impact on how confident teams are agreeing to deals in this period.

    Also, what if the tables were turned and the Mavs pulled the offer? The NBAPA would have a fit.

    • Eddie Scarito

      It’s such a rare occurrence that I don’t think it will have a significant impact on how the moratorium works. But it IS interesting how often this seems to happen with Dallas. I wonder if they are TOO good at making a sales pitch, but the moratorium allows for “buyer’s remorse” from its targets.

  4. I vote for starting Free Agency AFTER the Moratorium has been lifted. Then there wouldn’t be anymore problems. Oh and I vote for DJ to come back to Los Angeles. Especially if his agent was being shady.

  5. Mark

    Steve Ballmer is a hands on guy who will keep working until he makes the sale. He’s passionate and he wants this guy back. It’s business.

    • Chuck Myron

      Forgot about the Ballmer angle. This would be his first major coup as an owner. Of course, I’m not sure how the other owners would feel about the new guy busting up an agreed-upon deal, but it was apparently Jordan who reached out to the Clips, and not the other way around.

    If he’s a man of his word he should go to the Mavs. If he flakes out on his word, he’s a punk and Dirk should break his legs.

  7. Mack Green

    If his agent was indeed steering him towards the Mavs because of a working relationship to Mark Cuban as one of your updates suggested, then having a change of heart upon receiving more info is certainly acceptable. There are some agents who cut side deals with owners unbeknownst to the client and this seems to be one of those cases.
