With the Warriors now apparently out on Chandler, they must turn their attention to another possible big man to sign. Stein tweeted that the W's will focus on Los Angeles Clippers' restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan now, likely pushing as hard as they can to get him, for the center position needs an upgrade badly in the Bay.
