Okay, so the headline may seem a little contradictory, but it’s accurate. The Los Angeles Clippers are taking calls regarding the availability of center DeAndre Jordan, who has been receiving praise for the job he is doing with the team.
Jordan has been commended by the organization for keeping composed despite the nonstop trade rumors and despite Blake Griffin’s injury.
“We’ve got to stick with it and find a way to keep this ship afloat while these guys get healthy,” Jordan told Sam Amick of USA TODAY Sports. “I’ll let (the front office) handle what they handle. That’s out of my control, so I’ll focus on what I can control.”
“Like I said, I’m happy being here and you know, we’ll see what happens. If they come to me and they want to talk about (a possible trade), we can talk about it, you know? I don’t believe nothing in this league until it happens.”
Obviously, a part of this is to increase Jordan’s value on the trade market, a market the Clippers are shopping Jordan in, listening to all calls, according to Sam Amick of USA TODAY Sports.
Rockets, Clippers Interested in Andre Iguodala
According to the report, the Grizzlies have tried to find a suitable trade partner to ship out Iguodala in the hopes of getting some value back, and have engaged in talks with the Dallas Mavericks and the Denver Nuggets at different points.
In regards to the Rockets, they are still not comfortable with the idea of going deep in the luxury tax just to land Iguodala.
The Clippers appear to be resistant in giving up newly acquired forward Mo Harkless in landing Iguodala.
Clippers, Mavs, Bulls, Lakers Interested in Patrick Beverley
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley will see his fair share of interest as he heads to free agency, and that includes interest from the Clippers as well.
However, Beverley will be seeking to be rewarded for signing with his next team, or staying with the Clippers.
According to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon, Beverley is looking for a three-year deal worth over $40 million.
Clippers Interested in Bringing Back Tobias Harris
The Los Angeles Clipper may very well bring back forward Tobias Harris once free agency kicks off later this week.
Harris was traded from the Clippers to the Philadelphia 76ers at the February trade deadline, and now is set to hit unrestricted free agency where he is likely to land a max contract.
Harris averaged 20.0 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists last season.
