DeAndre Jordan Re-Signed with the Clippers, and Mark Cuban is Pissed

By Jason McIntyre

DeAndre Jordan is staying with the Clippers – despite what he told the Mavericks a week ago – and here’s a dark photo from Paul Pierce of the center signing the extension.

Mark Cuban, the Dallas owner, was allegedly driving around Houston Wednesday night, desperately trying to find Jordan’s house, but couldn’t. It may not have mattered, anyway – the Clippers contingent led by Doc Rivers and Chris Paul wouldn’t have let Cuban in the door.

Obviously, this decision has massive ramifications in the West. Are the Mavericks a playoff team? Just how good are the Clippers? They reached the Western Conference semifinals – blowing a 3-1 lead to the Rockets – and have added Paul Pierce and Lance Stephenson while losing just one rotation player (Matt Barnes) so far.

Jamal Crawford is rumored to be close to signing with the Cavaliers.

Even with him, the Clippers aren’t better than the Warriors, Thunder and Spurs. Last week we discussed how the West would look with Jordan in Dallas; you’ve got to wonder if the Mavericks even crack the playoffs now.
