The Los Angeles Clippers may have been forced into a complete rebuild after the loss of forward Blake Griffin to an MCL sprain.
According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, “the Clippers have put feelers out to a handful of teams” on Jordan.
Jordan has caught wind of the trade rumors saying that “It’s humbling,” according to Bleacher Report’s Eric Pincus. “It shows that other people want you and that you have value.”
Jordan could find himself at the center of trade talks with teams such as the Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee Bucks and the Dallas Mavericks among other likely suitors.
The Suns have had interest in Jordan in the past and are looking to move Greg Monroe and/or Tyson Chandler ahead of the deadline.
With Alex Len not exactly setting the world on fire with his play, Phoenix could upgrade their frontcourt with the addition of Jordan.
Dallas has been in the mix to land Jordan in the past. In fact they did before they lost him in a bizarre story that left a sour taste in the mouths of all parties involved.
With Nerlens Noel not impressing his team, Jordan could be brought in the fold to solidify a Dallas frontcourt.
The Bucks have had some challenges on the defensive side of the court and Jordan would instantly give that side of the ball a much needed boost.
Plus, the thought of a front court with both Jordan and the Greek Freak at the helm is a scary thought for any team in the NBA.
It will come down to price for the Bucks and what the Clippers would be willing to take in return in any Jordan trade.
Don’t count out the Cavaliers either as Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon reported a league source believes that the team would be open to a Tristan Thompson-DeAndre Jordan swap.
