DeAndre Jordan hilariously compares conference call with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving to 2015 Clippers-Mavs drama
Remember when DeAndre Jordan was locked in his house during the 2015 free agency period? According to the new Brooklyn Nets center, none of that stuff happened this summer with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
The three All-Stars talked with each other on a conference call about playing together on the Nets. Irving, Durant and Jordan — who are very close friends — each signed four-year deals with Brooklyn.
In case you forgot, Jordan had agreed to sign a deal with the Dallas Mavericks in 2015, only to re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers after he was locked in his house by Clippers players and head coach Doc Rivers.
DeAndre Jordan signed a four-year, $40 million contract with the Nets. At this point, it’s unclear if Jordan is going to start for the Nets or back up Jarrett Allen.
Jordan split time last season with the Mavericks and New York Knicks. The All-Star big man averaged 11.0 points, 13.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.1 blocks while shooting 64.1 percent from the field and a career-high 70.5 percent from the free-throw line.
Jordan will be a good rim protector for Brooklyn and get easy baskets at the hoop all season long playing alongside Irving and Spencer Dinwiddie — two guys who are elite at getting into the lane and collapsing defenses.
