The Brooklyn Nets seek to get rid of the interior DeAndre Jordan, already tracked by a cador in the event of a buyout.
It’s no secret that the Brooklyn Nets are no longer relying on DeAndre Jordan. At 33, the interior has clearly lost its luster. And currently, the interior weighs heavily in the franchise’s finances compared to its limited intake.
Thus, the native of Houston must still collect $ 19.7 million over the next two seasons. To limit the damage, the leaders of the Nets sought to exchange it. For several weeks, the former Los Angeles Clippers has been offered to many teams.
But with his current contract, he represents a difficult element to move. According to the information of the journalist of ESPN Ramona Shelburne, a “buyout” seems possible on this file. Probably during the season depending on how the situation develops.
For his part, The Athletic’s insider Alex Schiffer goes even further: Jordan will no longer be a member of the Nets for the training camp. And in the event of a “buyout”, a name is already coming back with insistence to recover it: the Los Angeles Lakers.
DeAndre Jordan could well complete the rotation inside the Angelenos. Behind Anthony Davis, he would be in competition with Dwight Howard and potentially Marc Gasol, if the Spaniard decides to return. A file to follow.
