National Basketball Association trade deadline rumors: Cavs, Clippers still discussing a DeAndre Jordan deal

National Basketball Association trade deadline rumors: Cavs, Clippers still discussing a DeAndre Jordan deal

DeAndre Jordan has been in trade rumors for weeks, and talks are heating up between the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Someone like Clippers center DeAndre Jordan could help in a big way.

Who knows? Maybe Montell's 6-foot-8 frame might be of some assistance in halting the current situation the Cavs are in.

Sam Amick of USA Today indicates that the Cavaliers offered their own first-round pick to the Clippers for Jordan, along with veterans Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith.

Trump Wants a Military Parade, Former Obama Staffers Call it 'Pointless'
Dunford Jr., Trump's seemingly abstract desire for a parade was suddenly heard as a presidential directive, the officials said. The president is "exploring options" for different ways to "highlight and show pride in the military", she said.

It is not surprising that Cleveland is trying to find a third club to help bolster the package for Los Angeles, as the Cavaliers don't have a whole lot of assets to trade for Jordan.

There was plenty of movement before the 3 p.m. ET deadline, but Jordan stayed put despite several teams reportedly showing interest. "If somebody else doesn't jump into the fray, there is a good chance that the Clippers will just keep Jordan for the rest of the season and ultimately let him expire off their cap".

The Cavs are attempting to improve their roster by only parting with their own first round pick and retaining Brooklyn's. It's also unclear what third team would actually get involved with this deal. It likely wouldn't be a team in the Eastern Conference, so it limits which ones might be included in these negotiations. In his 47 games played for the Clippers this season, the Houston native has turned in averages of 11.5 points on 58.8 percent shooting from the field and 14.9 rebounds.

Nurkić has a more polished offensive game since Jordan's range extends no further than the paint, but the Bosnian center has been way too inconsistent this season.
