DeAndre Jordan

    Kenny Atkinson wouldn't commit to a starting center regarding the Jarrett Allen or DeAndre Jordan decision he has looming.

    Atkinson did mention that Jordan told him he'll do whatever is needed to win. Allen would seem to be the better bet to start at this point, but they're probably looking at a pretty even timeshare. While Jordan was on the Knicks, he started and played about the same 26 minutes that Allen did on the Nets this past season.

    Nets coach Kenny Atkinson is non-committal on who he expects to be his starting C next season between DeAndre Jordan and Jarrett Allen, while also relaying that Jordan is comfortable with doing whatever the team needs.

    It's early July, and the team has two capable starting Cs on the roster, so a decision will likely come after coach Atkinson can evaluate the team in the preseason and during practices. The added tidbit that Jordan is comfortable coming off the bench may play a role in the team's decision, but this is likely to be a fluid situation all season.

    The Nets have announced the signing of DeAndre Jordan.

    Jordan is set to earn $40 million over the next four seasons. He's a nice complement to Jarrett Allen up front as a big body who can hold his own against large centers and grab rebounds by the handful, though we're skeptical that the 10-year vet will be able to outplay Allen consistently. Beyond that, Jordan is an excellent locker room presence that should help shepherd a young team that just had its world rocked by superstar additions. How Kenny Atkinson splits the minutes between Jordan and Allen will determine their fantasy outlooks, and a true timeshare or hot hand approach would drastically limit the appeal of both.

    DeAndre Jordan has agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal with the Nets.

    Brooklyn got commitments from Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan tonight, making them the clear winners of free agency (on paper). This deal will take Jordan through age-34, and he'll likely split the center minutes with Jarrett Allen. It's going to hurt the fantasy prospects of both players but the Nets will no longer be overmatched against big-bodied centers and have someone who can tilt the rebounding scales in their favor. Both Irving and Durant are reportedly taking small paycuts to get Jordan his $10 million annually, which is a nice start in terms of team-building. Michael Scotto of The Athletic is reporting that the deal is fully guaranteed, so there are no options at play.

  • DeAndre Jordan

    The Nets are expected to sign free agent C DeAndre Jordan once free agency opens, in addition to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

    As Woj puts it, the Nets are making a clean sweep right as free agency opens with their new three-headed monster. Whether Durant returns around playoff time or takes a full year off is anyone's guess, but this team is going to be fun to watch. Jordan should be in line for the lion's share of center minutes over Jarrett Allen, though exactly how the two split time remains to be seen.

  • Kyrie Irving

    Kyrie Irving will give the Nets a formal commitment when free agency opens, per Marc Stein, with the Nets still "aggressively pursuing" Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan.

    Brooklyn is hoping that Irving is enough to attract Durant and Jordan — who is Durant's close friend. The Nets are still armed with one max contract slot even after accounting for Irving, and they'll be able to put it to good use with Durant's decision coming tonight. Either they land KD or they can quickly pivot to snap up second and third-tier free agents.

    The Lakers are expected to try and find a way to sign DeAndre Jordan, per a report from ESPN.

    Jordan apparently has an interest in playing in Los Angeles again, and while he's also being courted by the same teams pursuing his good friend Kevin Durant (i.e. the New York teams), it's possible that the setup in L.A. is more appealing. Jordan would probably have to take a pay cut, but it's possible that he suits up for the Lakers if they decide to spend their money on multiple players rather than one max guy. All eyes are on L.A. this summer.

  • Danny Green
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Sam Amick of The Athletic is reporting that the Rockets are considering Danny Green, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jeremy Lamb, Brook Lopez, DeAndre Jordan and Kevon Looney as possible targets in free agency.

    Houston is focused on completing a sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler but those players, either as cheap depth around the new Big Three or as fallback options, are all good fits. There's a ton of balls in the air at this point but it's clear that the Rockets are prepared to shake things up and are planning to cover their bases at every position.

    According to Marc Stein of the NY Times, the Nets are exploring the possibility of signing DeAndre Jordan, Kevin Durant's close friend, with the hopes that his addition will make Brooklyn a more enticing spot for Durant.

    Stein went on to state that the Knicks, who are also in the Durant race, are still interested in re-signing Jordan. The Nets are the favorites to land Kyrie Irving right now and his addition will undoubtedly make them a more attractive option so if they could also manage to poach Jordan away from the Knicks, they'd have two of Durant's good friends on the same team. Although he'll likely miss the entirety of next season, Durant is still garnering quite a market and the Nets look to be getting more and more aggressive as July 1 nears.

    The Lakers have reportedly shown interest in DeAndre Jordan.

    Jordan is in a strange spot, entering his decline at a position that is increasingly looking for more versatile skillsets than he has to offer but still good enough to command a large-ish paycheck. It's unlikely that he gets a big deal from the Lakers, as it means they'll have failed to spend their money elsewhere, but he'd fit as a lob threat and rebounder. His fantasy stock should be fairly predictable as long as he doesn't end up in a timeshare situation.

    David Fizdale revealed in a radio interview that DeAndre Jordan wanted to stay a Knick when presented a buyout offer following the trade deadline.

    Many at the time believed that Jordan remaining in New York, rather than being given the opportunity to join a contender via buyout, was largely the Knicks' decision, making this a surprising revelation. It's unclear if Jordan will feel the same way as a free agent, but if he does return to New York in the offseason, it will only complicate star rookie Mitchell Robinson's outlook heading into next season.

    DeAndre Jordan picked up his seventh straight DNP-CD on Wednesday night, ending his season with averages of 11.0 points, 13.1 rebounds, a career-high 2.3 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.1 blocks with a .641 mark from the field and a career-high .705 from the free throw line.

    Jordan showed two new wrinkles to his game this season: increased playmaking chops (particularly with the Knicks) and vastly improved free throw shooting. His playing time was cut in New York – by the end of the season he was a 20-minute guy after getting 31.1 mpg with Dallas – but Jordan still provided the rebounds and field goal percentage while also managing to increase his blocks. The big man heads to free agency and should still have multiple suitors even as he ages. The big jump in free throw percentage to quasi-respectable levels is going to be key to his value going forward. A 70.5 percent conversion rate still isn’t the best, but if that can stay moving forward then you won’t necessarily be locked into a punt build by taking DJ. Andre Drummond’s jump and subsequent return to normalcy serves as your cautionary tale there. Jordan finished the year as a top-60/65 player in 8/9-cat leagues and was a top-65/80 player in total value because of a five-game absence for a sprained left ankle and all the DNPs.

    DeAndre Jordan didn't leave the bench in Saturday's tilt with the Heat.

    It's surprising that Jordan lasted this long in the rotation, but we may have seen his last appearance in a Knicks uniform. It's been said that the organization wants him to help recruit old friend Kevin Durant to New York this summer so they likely made this move with his blessing. You might want to give it one more game just in case David Fizdale changes his mind but DJ looks safe to drop.
