Cavaliers Trade Rumors: Ownership Approved DeAndre Jordan Deal Before Deadline

Cavaliers Trade Rumors: Ownership Approved DeAndre Jordan Deal Before Deadline

DeAndre Jordan was this close to not being a member of the Los Angeles Clippers last week.

In a series of blockbuster moves, the Cavs dealt Derrick Rose, Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert and Dwyane Wade in a number of different deals for Rodney Hood, Larry Nance Jr., Jordan Clarkson, and George Hill. truth be told, it was a insane 24 hours for Cleveland.

The reason the Clippers wanted a center from a third team was because they reportedly weren't going to take Shumpert, J.R. Smith or Tristan Thompson in any kind of deal for Jordan.

Clippers president Lawrence Frank, Winger and Altman had talked for weeks on a trade, but they got nowhere.

As that conversation was on hold, the Cavs laid the groundwork for the deals with the Lakers, Jazz and Kings that included all of the pieces that would have secured Jordan. Cleveland went another direction.

During the 2015 offseason, Jodan signed a four-year max contract worth US$87 million (AU$113 million) to stay in Los Angeles.

The Cavs dominated the Boston Celtics, 121-99, on Sunday, and followed it up with a 120-112 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday. But the Cavs made a decision to execute a deal with L.A.'s other team instead, sending Frye, the draft pick and Isaiah Thomas to the Los Angeles Lakers, acquiring Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson in return. James is averaging 27.7 points, 9.3 rebounds and 12.3 assists per game during that time. In fact, conversations between the two teams were so serious that general manager Koby Altman brought a potential deal to LeBron James for his blessing.

With Griffin and Chris Paul departing, he's getting more of a chance to show what he can do offensively and performances like this will see him receive strong interest in free agency this summer.

But their captures of Clarkson, Hood, and Nance seemed to come out of the blue.

The Clippers made a decision to hang on to Jordan despite previously trading power forward Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made three deals in the hours leading up to the 2018 National Basketball Association trade deadline, sending away six players and completely retooling a broken roster. But according to a long and thorough report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday, the overhaul was almost even more drastic.
