The Dallas Mavericks are no longer interested in Los Angeles Clippers’ forward DeAndre Jordan. Since their free agency courtship crashed, Jordan returned to Dallas for the first time to feature in Wednesday’s Clippers vs Mavs match.
After committing to a move toward Dallas, Jordan declined it and preferred to play for Los Angeles Clippers. Jordan was booed throughout his presence at the American Airlines Center, from his warmup up to the end of the game.
“I thought it was going to be a lot worse, honestly,” Jordan revealed regarding Dallas Mavericks 118-108 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Jordan also had a mediocre outing with nine points and 11 rebounds in 27 minutes.
“He’s not a priority to us,” said Chandler Parsons, Mavs’ senior player. “And by the looks of their team, he’s not to them, either.”
That was a verbal jab to Jordan, who was expected to be the focal point of Clippers’ offense.
Jordan didn’t want to get into a verbal duel that started this summer.
“OK, I’m tired of answering the same questions,” Jordan said. “I talked about this three months ago. Ultimately, I made a decision that was for me. And hopefully over time people will understand that. If not, talk to Mark Cuban about it.”
