Though a long shot, the Warriors intend to explore their free agent chances with Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, who is planning on opting out of his current deal with Los Angeles.

Jordan, who has been with the Clippers his entire 10-year career, has a deadline of 8:59 PDT Friday to exercise the option of his contract that will pay him $24.1 million next season. Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and now Jordan are all now in different cities, while in Dallas, the team is preparing for their post -irk Nowitzki reality. Instead, he's expected to remain a Maverick with the team looking to offer him a new deal, albeit a cheaper one, per Bobby Marks of ESPN via his colleague, Tim McMahon.

Just after 11 p.m. Saturday night, free agent center DeAndre Jordan made it official in the most 2018 way possible.

This is Jordan's second turn at free agency. He will make close to $24.1 million in 2018-19, the report says.

Three years after they almost came together, the Mavericks finally get the center they have long coveted. In 10 National Basketball Association seasons, all with the Clippers, he has career averages of 9.4 points, 10.7 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 1.7 blocks. Jordan can't officially sign a new contract until the moratorium ends next Friday, however.

An All-Star center last season, Jordan averaged 12.0 points, 15.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game in his final season with the Clippers. Jordan played a franchise-record 750 games over 10 seasons with the Clippers.

While nothing is certain in free agency, Jordan joining the Mavs has felt like one of the surest things this offseason.

It is no surprise that Jordan is attempting to secure a deal with the Mavericks, but the two sides are not allowed to discuss and finalize a deal until July.
