Trail Blazers join Cavs, Bucks in pursuit of Jordan

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks have been aggressively pursuing Los Angeles Clippers big man DeAndre Jordan as the February trade deadline approaches, and we can now add a third team to the Jordan sweepstakes.

According to a report from the New York Times, the Portland Trail Blazers are interested in acquiring Jordan and have tried to engage the Clippers on a deal.

The New York Times is also reporting the Clippers, as of now, have yet to receive an offer for Jordan they find appealing from the Cavs, Bucks or Trail Blazers.

Last week, it was reported J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson have been mentioned as the possible trade candidates from Cleveland’s side, but the Cavs are not entertaining any offers for the highly coveted 2018 Brooklyn Nets first-round pick.

Cleveland is also trying to acquire Clippers guard Lou Williams.

  1. Can’t see the Clippers accepting a Blazers trade unless they massively overpay. Any deal would have to either involve Evan Turner’s contract, or some combination of Harkless, Leonard, Aminu, Davis. Taking back Turner, Leonard, or Harkless’ contract, you might as well just keep him and sign him to a three year deal yourself. Doing a 4:1 with the lesser contracts just makes Blazers overall team worse.

    This seems like the Clippers leaking interest to raise the value of DJ. Windhorst and Woj have been saying for weeks, no one is giving up more than a first for a soon to be free agent, 1 dimensional, traditional center, that you have to pay like a superstar. His real value would be on a title contending team, paying him to play to his strengths. He’s not going to move the needle, he’s going to solidify a single area of weakness.

  2. Kent Bazemore?
