According to ESPN, The Los Angeles Clippers are trying to persuade DeAndre Jordan to change his mind on signing with the Mavericks after Jordan verbally committed to join Dallas last week.
Sources said Wednesday afternoon that Jordan is increasingly “leaning” toward a return to the team that drafted him, with the Clippers indeed “optimistic” he will stay in L.A.
Sources said that Clippers coach/team president Doc Rivers and owner Steve Ballmer were meeting with Jordan later Wednesday in Houston where Jordan lives in the offseason home to persuade him to walk away from the four-year, $80-plus million max deal he committed to with the Mavericks and instead stay with L.A.
Clippers Stars guard Chris Paul and Paul Pierce are among the Clippers players expected to join that meeting.
