Warriors Preparing Offer for DeAndre Jordan

The Warriors are preparing an offer sheet for restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan. Marcus Thompson of the Contra Costa Times worked out that the Warriors are targeting about a $9- or $10-million per season offer. The Clippers have been rumored to be offering five years, $40 million: “The Warriors are preparing an offer sheet for Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, according to a team source. The Warriors must have the space under the cap to cover the first year of the deal in order to make the offer.”

    Young guy puts up a partial season.. 10 million offer. hows a team supposed to build anything

  • Stroshow

    The clips should just let him go if this is his price. They still have Kaman to take the minutes.


    7 footers don’t grow on trees.


    Before someone corrects me, yes I know he’s 6-11, but you know what I mean. Finding a quality center in this league is hard to do. That’s why guys like DeAndre Jordan, Nene, and Tyson Chandler are getting paid big money this off-season.

    As a clippers season ticket holder I would say DJ is overrated, though very likable. Would not be getting this much attention if not for Blake griffin. I would not match the warriors offer

  • Bondsncruz

    I 100% agree Stroshow, the Clipper should just get out of the way and let him go to the Dubs.

    Unbelievable…7 points, 7 rebounds and almost twice as many fouls as blocks (in 26 minutes) gets you $10 million per year? This league is so broken. I honestly worry about the fate of professional basketball.

    The owners are hell bent on destroying the L with all these stupid contracts.

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    1. Owners give big contracts to unproven kids with “potential.” (Amir Johnson, DeAndre Jordan)
    2. Owners give HUGE contracts to fringe all-stars (Rashard Lewis, Nene, Tyson Chandler)
    3. Small market owners refuse to spend more to surround star with talent (Denver, New Orleans)
    4. Big market owners push hard for stars (New York, LA)
    5. Owners lockout players to resolve issues and blame players.
    6. Lockout over! Resume cycle as soon as you are allowed.

    ^^^More like a Locomotive to me! So either GS overpays to “steal” him or the Clips overpay to keep him. It’s a no-win for everyone involved. GS pays too much for a player they want, but don’t need. The Clips finally get a year where D starts to show promise but then needs to either overpay or let him go in the middle of their rebuilding. DJordan gets a contract he probably can’t live up to and thus becomes the blame for either teams stagnation/salary cap trouble…

    This sucks, and who put out the 40m rumor? That was badly done. Without a benchmark a fair offer could have been made at 24m for 4 yrs or so…Now i agree with the comments above, its almost a no win situation. Deandre should refrain from signing too large offer sheets and sign with the clips for 6 / 7 mil a year. Ofcourse he’ll go for the biggest check but look at jefferson, arenas and lewis, the get mentiined in every discussion about bad contracts, talentoverrating and broken management. Be smart, take the realistic offer (yeah right..)

    Stupid Warriors’ management. But the Rockets desperately need this guy, and will probably have to outbid this overpriced bid to get him.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Chris Kaman is a better player than DeAndre Jordan. Maybe not defensively, but he’ll give you close to 18 and 9 if the minutes are right. MAYBE even 20 and 10.

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    Kaman is one of the most underrated players in the game. He’s almost on par with Nene and the Brazillian is getting a $17 million/year paycheck. I guess Orks get no love.

    TBear and C, not the past 2 years he hasn’t. Ask any Clips fan and they will go on about how he has underperformed since breaking through a couple years back. Nene is a natural PF, but is now looked at a C by teams because of the position as a whole. That said he still scores more efficiently than Kaveman, plays better/more athletic D and is more consistent on a night-to-night basis. If Kaveman doesn’t get back to his old ways, DJ (if he builds off last year) will pass him by (as he did at the end of last year). Kaveman may have maxed out/shown his best, DJ still has more room to improve (and if he doesn’t his still younger and more durable) so teams salivate over the possibility. I could see DJ starting, whereas I love Kaveman coming off the bench because of that O you speak of…

  • RunNGun

    @CABOOSE Agreed… Kaveman is very underrated. Now, if he only could stay healthy…
