Dallas Mavericks Working On DeAndre Jordan Trade: Report

And although the Houston, Texas, native long has been connected to the Dallas Mavericks, the Warriors plan to make a run at the 29-year-old, The New York Times' Marc Stein reported Saturday, citing sources.

Jordan declined the final year on his contract with the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday that would have paid him just over $24 million had he opted in.

Dallas never meant to sign Jordan long-term, and he was fine with that.

Especially when a free agent who jilted a team three years ago decides to sign with that team this time around. Dennis Smith Jr., taken ninth past year, has been joined by another player who will begin his National Basketball Association career as a teenager in European standout Luka Doncic.

Earlier this month, Priyanka reportedly met the singer's extended family at his cousin's wedding in New Jersey. But what stole the show - yet again - is Nita Ambani's performance on Kai Po Che's hit number Shubhaarambh .

Dallas moved up two spots in the draft last week to get the Slovenian guard, who was taken third overall by Atlanta while the Mavericks selected former Oklahoma scoring sensation Trae Young for the Hawks. 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.

Everyone who pays attention to the National Basketball Association remembers the DeAndre Jordan to the Mavericks debacle from a few years back.

Whatever proposal Jordan's agent, Jeff Schwartz, develops with the Mavericks, the Clippers aren't sure if it would benefit them to do a sign-and-trade deal, said the executives. He has career averages of 9.4 points, 10.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 10 seasons. Clippers coach Doc Rivers, then-teammates Chris Paul and Blake Griffin each traveled to the center's home, staying there until he re-signed with the Clippers.
