Rumor: Clippers have explored trade market for DeAndre Jordan

Haynes also mentioned that one of the teams the Clippers reached out to was the Phoenix Suns, and they reportedly proposed trading Jordan in exchange for the Suns’ fourth overall pick and center Tyson Chandler.According to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, the Clippers would be probing the market value of DeAndre Jordan to act accordingly should the context lead them to transfer it. One of the latest to pop up involves a potential trade of #DeAndre Jordan by the Los Angeles Clippers. So far it seems like the deal is not going to happen, but these trade rumors could indicate that the Clippers are trying to build a better roster for Chris Paul or are simply rebuilding.Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times’ Brad Turner has reported that team officials told him that the Clippers aren’t really actively shopping Jordan around the league, and he said they haven’t discussed any deal with other teams.It’s possible Blake Griffin could leave for another team when free agency begins in July and if he does, Los Angeles may be forced to sell unless they can add another big piece to replace Griffin.Giving up the No. 4 pick may have ended the conversation from Phoenix’s end.Jordan averaged 12.7 points, 13.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game last season. Jordan is slated to make $22.6 million next season, with a $24.1 million player option for 2018-19 that is surely on the Clippers’ mind.And several National Basketball Association teams have multiple second-round picks, which should make it easier for the Clippers to secure one.
