DeAndre Jordan agrees to one-year deal with Dallas Mavericks

Wojnarowski further reports that Jordan and the Dallas Mavericks are "prepared to partner together".

Only $2.1 million of Teodosic's $6.3-million contract for 2018-19 is guaranteed. Stein does add though that Jordan would have to take a big paycut to sign with the Warriors and that the Dallas Mavericks are still the favorites to sign him.

Jordan even showed improvement as a free throw shooter last season with a career-high 58 percent success rate.

After having second thoughts and getting recruited by his Los Angeles teammates to re-sign, he reneged and signed a four-year, $88 million deal to stay with the Clippers.

Since the change of heart by Jordan, the most productive center for the Mavericks was their immediate replacement - Zaza Pachulia in 2015-16. Jordan played a franchise-record 750 games over 10 seasons with the Clippers. Jordan can't officially sign a new contract until the moratorium ends next Friday, however.




MAVS BOUND? DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers decides to test the free agency.

Talk of the Mavs' interest in Jordan began two days ago, as The New York Times' Marc Stein first reported on potential trade talks between the two teams.

The Warriors had also reportedly been interested in possibly signing Jordan. Rookie Luka Doncic, whose draft rights were acquired by Dallas in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks, will be in charge of running the offense.

There is still work to do for the Mavericks, who finished 24-58 last season, to become a playoff contender in the Western Conference.

Jordan appeared to confirm the deal on his Twitter account.
