After it initially seemed as if center DeAndre Jordan would exercise his contract option for $24.1 million with the Los Angeles Clippers, the 29-year-old center has chosen to become a free agent.

This is also possibly a move in anticipation of DeAndre Jordan's arrival in Dallas, three years after snubbing the Mavericks in a controversial flip-flopping. If he decided not to opt in, Jordan would hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

One of the most dominant defensive big men in the National Basketball Association has the option to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, which ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports is exactly what he will do. "Whether it's via free agency, whether it's via a trade, you're constantly looking for ways to improve the roster". He will make close to $24.1 million in 2018-19, the report says.

The Mavericks remain the favorites to sign Jordan.

DJ, who had spent his entire 10-year career with the organisation, averaged 12 points and a career-high 15.2 rebounds per game this past campaign.

Jordan's field goal percentage dipped below 70 per cent for the first time in three seasons past year, but part of that could be due to the departure of point guard Chris Paul.

All signs are pointing toward Jordan being a Maverick next season, but as we have seen, literally anything is possible.

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

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.

Though Jordan, 29, could nearly certainly earn a lucrative multi-year deal on the open market, the Warriors are hoping to entice Jordan with the taxpayer mid-level exception, worth 5.3 million for one season.
