Chandler Parsons and Mark Cuban finally got their guy. DeAndre Jordan is nearing a deal to sign with the Dallas Mavericks for four years and $80 million. Jordan has been going back and forth between the Mavericks and Clippers for days now. The decision leaves the Clippers in a very precarious situation since they are over the salary cap.
Chandler Parsons and the Mavs have put the full-court press on Jordan since the beginning of free agency. His arrival in Dallas, along with Wes Matthews, makes for a pretty successful offseason for the Maverick front office. Jordan should have much bigger role in Rick Carlisle’s pick-and-roll heavy offense with Dirk Nowitzki acting as a floor space. Jordan has wanted a bigger role in Los Angeles, but the move to Dallas should actually give him that opportunity.
Mark Cuban has been on the big game hunt for several summers now and he’s finally got his big catch. Now, the rest of the league awaits the other big player in free agency: LaMarcus Aldridge.
