The Golden State Warriors reportedly have an offer in place for Los Angeles Clippers restricted free-agent DeAndre Jordan that they will present to him on Friday, sources tell Yahoo! Sports, with the deal reportedly starting out around $10 million for the upcoming season, according to Justin Phan on Twitter.
The Warriors had originally desired free-agent center Tyson Chandler, but he is now closing in on a four-year, $58 million deal with the New York Knicks. The Warriors’ offer sheet hasn’t been completely finalized, as the $10 million offer is likely the beginning point of their negotiations.
Jordan has already been presented with a five-year, $40 million deal by the Clippers, who would love to keep their young nucleus of Jordan, Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon together. The Clippers will have three days to match any offers that Jordan signs off on.
