    Default DeAndre Jordan RFA

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/features/rumors

    DeAndre Jordan | Clippers TopEmailCommentsAccording to Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD, the Clippers have extended a qualifying offer to DeAndre Jordan, making him a restricted free agent.

    This was an expected move, as the team is looking to pair the young, defensive-minded center with Rookie of the Year Blake Griffin going forward as a strong frontcourt duo.

    But it's possible the Clippers may have some competition for his services, other offers of which they'll be able to match and retain Jordan.

    The Rockets -- with Yao Ming's future uncertain and Brad Miller injured -- could be in need of a center. Portland -- depending on whether they retain Greg Oden or not -- could aso be interested in a center.

    The Heat and Knicks will be in the market for centers this offseason, but likely won't be able to offer anything the Clippers wouldn't look to match.

    -- Ryan Corazza
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    From the games I saw he looked like an awesome center. very athletic and can def D up allstar bigs. Clips are always trading away talent and takin in questoinable players.

    Would love to have him, but we have to pay Roy next summer and there's no sense in having like 80 mil tied up between two 5s. Hopefully the Clips will overpay Jordan and pave the way for EJ to come to Indy.

    We could always not pay Roy.

    Offer 5yr. 35-40mil.. This will atleast push the Clippers into over paying him. If not, Pacers will have a very nice start to 11' in the front court. Heck of a 1-2 punch. Would Love to have him.

    Here is the scouting report from Hollinger:

    + Big lefty who can get deep position and make short-range shots.

    + Has no shooting range or ball skills; worst foul shooter in captivity.

    + Size adds defensive value but needs better focus and coordination.

    Jordan's free throw stroke doesn't look that bad -- certainly it seems better than Chris Dudley's or Ben Wallace's. But the ball don't lie: Jordan stands at 38 percent for his career, on a pretty large sample of 237 free throw attempts. Based on this data, hack-a-'Dre is an outstanding strategy at the end of quarters, where teams can essentially give themselves a 2-for-1 with a bad Clippers possession in between. Not enough opponents take advantage of this option.

    Jordan is a good finisher around the basket and can get deep post position, plus he ranked 17th among centers in Rebound Rate. But the free throws are indicative of his lack of focus and iffy work ethic, traits that also get him in trouble on defense. The other issue is his propensity for turnovers -- only three centers produced a worse Turnover Ratio.

    I'd be okay with that, I mean its definitely overpaying, but we could run him at PF for times and have a young twin towers. I still think the Clippers would match which is why I'd offer that, to throw them off...

    Too many people are trying to fit square pegs in round holes by putting another center next to Roy in the froncourt. It wouldn't work. It's a nice thought, and would be worth a shot if the guy was on a minimum or rookie contract, but throwing serious money at DeAndre Jordan or Tyson Chandler (two guys with virtually no offensive games, for the record) hoping it would work out is not a wise use of our cap space. I know we need a defensive minded, athletic defender next to Roy as much as anyone else, but this is not the route to take.

    I love Roy, and Im not saying Jordan is better but if we could sign Jordan I would consider moving Roy in the draft to move up for a Williams or Knight. Problem is we would mortgage a lot on a possibility because we could not sign Jordan until a week after the draft which means trading Hibbert w/ no guarantee Jordan signs here.

    I think Hibbert, Rush, 15 could get us close to top 5.

    Outside of Kyrie and D. Williams, who in the 3-8 range would you trade Roy and #15 for? I don't think there's anyone in this draft worth that much.

    Knight & Williams only. We cant get Irving. I think #2 could be in play for that offer. But again, Im not sure I'de be willing to play that kind of poker, then get burned and not have Hibbert or Jordan.

    This is a fantastic lineup w/ tons of room to grow.

    Jordan/Foster
    Hansbrough/McRoberts
    Granger/Posey
    George/Jones/Stephenson
    Collison/Knight/Price

    Year 2 for Knight, I consider moving Collison which will be a valuable piece and Brandon becomes starter.

    Completely hypothetical though.

    Why do you feel that way? Do you think they can't guard power forwards better than, say, Jeff Foster does?

    I agree with the C/PF and if it takes 11+ mil to get chandler at his age, then I don't want him.
    But...
    Pacers need someone to come off the bench and Pacers was just paying Foster 6.6mil. and was playing Bob at times. Hibbert only plays approx. 25 mpg. So, we get slap jacks for the other 23 mpg to save acouple million? And if Hibbert gets in foul trouble or gets hurt...we play who? Let's actually try to spend some of the salary to make Pacers solid and a much better team. If Pacers can get Jordan for 7-8 mil. I see know down side in that. We can't get another center that good at age 22 with his skill set. I don't see it happening in a trade unless it's a expiring dump that just messes with team chemistry.

    I think they can do it, but you limit their effectiveness that way. You make them play PF and chase around the many, many perimeter oriented 4s, it will pull them away from the basket and vastly diminish their effectiveness. Lord knows you can't switch it and pull Roy away from the basket. At that point, you take away the best part of their games and they contribute very, very little on the offensive end. Not only that, but you are paying them a premium to do it.

    Gasol Ide rather have over Jordan but not Nene. But I cant see Gasol or Nene leaving.

    Not high on Nene hes 29 with a surgically repaired blown out knee who is wanting a 6 year deal at prob around 14 or 15 MIL a season. If he were 25 I would pay him, but Nene is going to be way over paid the last 3 years of that deal.

    Where as Gasol is 26 and Jordan is 22.

    If your going to pay someone, pay someone who will live the life of the contract.

    I guess I feel like this kind of a mismatch is given more importance than it deserves. Besides, most of those "stretch fours" couldn't stop a guy like Jordan from finishing around the hoop, either, so it goes both ways.

    Pacers could always do that next year with Roy or Jordan in a much better draft. Just a thought!

    No, it doesn't. Have you watched that guy? He has no offensive moves whatsoever. The only reason he scores is because his man drifts over to help on Blake Griffin. He will score on put backs and garbage plays and what not, but Jordan is not a guy who takes advantage of having slightly smaller guys guarding him. He just doesn't have an offensive game.

    This is true but when compared to a Tyson Chandler for example with similar range we are talking about a 22 vs 29 year old.

    A LOT of time for Jordan to work on his offensive game. He is a center without a doubt though, but I think there can be teams and matchups where Hibs and Jordan could play together like Gasol/Bynum or Duncan/Splitter.

    I didn't say he would score off of a move, I said he would finish. In other words, if he gets to/around the rim, a stretch four is likely going to get the ball tattooed on his head, as opposed to being able to prevent the dunk or layup attempt. I did not in any way mean to suggest a set play revolving a one on one scoring situation.

    Roy's a willing and able passer. Either they just glue to the jumbo PF, or they double off, Roy finds him, and he finishes rather easily.

    Otherwise, it's like any big without a scoring game, you have him out there moving and screening to go along with the junk yard plays. I'm just saying he's likely to have an easier time doing that with a stretch four guarding him rather than a center.
