Effects from the DeAndre Jordan free agency fiasco are still being felt—the big fella has reportedly dumped his agents from Relativity Sports, the same ones that had pushed him to sign with the Dallas Mavericks during the summer.

Jordan eventually changed his mind and re-upped with the LA Clippers on a four-year, $88 million deal.
The big fella reportedly made the decision to get new reps shortly after the Clips were fined $250K for trying to arrange a dodgy business side-deal with the 27-year-old.
Per the LA Times:
Jordan informed agents Dan Fegan and Jarinn Akana last week that he was moving “in another direction,” said an NBA official not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Jordan told his agents of his decision to drop them a few days after the NBA fined the Clippers $250,000 on Aug. 25 for violating rules that prohibit teams from offering players unauthorized business or investment opportunities. […] The Clippers committed the violation during their pitch to the free-agent center on July 2. They apparently discussed marketing opportunities that the NBA said included a third-party endorsement deal with Lexus.
Despite leaving Relativity Sports, Jordan still had to pay the agency the 4% it earned when he re-signed with the Clippers for $88 million over four years. […] Jordan now has left three agents in seven seasons – Joel Bell, Wasserman Media Group and now Relativity Sports.
