Jordan was set to make $24.1 million under the four-year, $87.6 million contract he signed to stay with the team that drafted him in 2008.

As a result of Jordan's decision, the Clippers will now lose their starting center without any potential return. Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and now Jordan are all now in different cities, while in Dallas, the team is preparing for their post -irk Nowitzki reality. The team possesses two of the top six players in the league (Steph and KD), as well as stars like Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. For his career, the Texas A&M product is averaging 9.4 points, 10.7 rebounds and and 1.7 blocks. "Whether it's via free agency, whether it's via a trade, you're constantly looking for ways to improve the roster". He immediately becomes one of the best big men available in this year's free agent class. Milos Teodosic exercised his option on next season, but the Clippers could waive the native of Serbia before July 16, when his deal becomes fully guaranteed. He will make close to $24.1 million in 2018-19, the report says. He's also average 10.7 rebounds over his career, including at least 13 a game the past five seasons.

Dallas never meant to sign Jordan long-term, and he was fine with that.

Nigeria game a definitive moment in Messi’s career
And his 31st birthday on Sunday only served to highlight how time is running out for Messi to win a major worldwide tournament. This team has lost the past three finals they have played - the 2014 World Cup and the Copa America in 2015 and 2016.

Though Jordan, 29, could nearly certainly earn a lucrative multi-year deal on the open market, the Warriors are hoping to entice Jordan with the taxpayer mid-level exception, worth 5.3 million for one season.

That situation still remains as one of the biggest head-scratchers in recent National Basketball Association history, and will live on in infamy for a long time.
