Clippers, Jordan talking extension

DeAndre Jordan has been coming up in trade conversations.

High-flyer DeAndre Jordan and the Los Angeles Clippers have held talks recently about a contract extension, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times.

Both camps are eager to get a deal done, with no timeframe being placed yet.

As the Times reports, Jordan is without representation at the moment, so he is handling all the negotiations by himself.

In 81 games last season, Jordan averaged 12.7 points and 13.8 rebounds per game while shooting 71.4 percent from the field.

Jordan and star forward Blake Griffin are the new leaders of the Clippers in the post-Chris Paul era. The two big men are surrounded by a new supporting cast, headlined by stretch forward Danilo Gallinari, and guards Miloš Teodosić, Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams.

Jordan signed a four-year, $87.6 million deal with the Clippers in 2015, with a player option for 2018.
