In a free agency season that changes by the hour, the one rumor that has remained consistent is the Mavericks interest in signing Jordan to anchor their front-court. There were rumors flying about a potential sign and trade deal to Dallas if Jordan opted into of his contract. The same method the Clippers used to get Chris Paul to Houston and get assets in return.
Jordan will bring the old-fashioned big man back to the Dallas Mavericks who have starved for a true big since they won a title with Tyson Chandler in the paint. Jordan averaged 12 points per game and an astounding 15.2 rebounds per game for the Clippers ion 2017-18.
