    Clippers make DeAndre Jordan signing legit

    After a night filled with drama, emojis and reversals of fortune, the Clippers announced Thursday they have officially signed center DeAndre Jordan to a new contract, besting the Mavericks for his services. Jordan averaged a career-high 11.5 points and 15.0 rebounds last season, leading the league in the latter category as well as field-goal percentage (71 percent). The Texas native appeared to be leaving L.A. for a max deal with the Mavs, but the Clippers took advantage of the league's moratorium in signing contracts to make an all-out push on social media and in-person to bring Jordan back into the fold.

    C DeAndre Jordan does an about-face in staying with Clippers

    Center DeAndre Jordan stunned the basketball world Wednesday by spurning a max deal from the Mavericks to re-sign with the Clippers. The deal with Dallas had appeared to be all but set, but the Clippers in the end convinced him to stay. His presence should maintain the status of the Clippers as a major title contender despite his offensive limitations and problems converting at the line. Jordan led the league with 15.0 rebounds per game last season while scoring 11.5 points on 71 percent shooting from the field, but he hit a disturbing 39.7 percent of his foul shots.

    Center-poor Lakers to meet with Greg Monroe, DeAndre Jordan

    In an attempt to fill a gaping hole at center, the Lakers will make pitches Wednesday to free agents Greg Monroe and DeAndre Jordan, per the Orange County Register. Monroe, who has reportedly felt unappreciated in Detroit, averaged 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game for the Pistons last season. Jordan is a defensive specialist and premier rebounder who has struggled mightily hitting foul shots for the cross-town Clippers and boasts virtually no offensive range. He led the NBA at 15.0 rebounds per game, but shot a horrific 41.7 percent at the line.
