NBA: Chris Paul Might Be The Reason That DeAndre Jordan Leaves Town

Lob City might have one less tower next season, as DeAndre Jordan will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. According to reports the 6-year veteran will command a max contract by other teams. Not only is that outside of the Los Angeles Clippers price range for a player that career averages are 8 points and 9 rebounds, but Jordan might want to just get away from star point guard Chris Paul. Bill Reiter of Fox Sports is reporting that Paul and Jordan had a “falling out” during the season.

The center averaged career highs in points (11.5), rebounds (15.0), and field-goal percentage (71.0), helping the Clippers to a 56-26 recorded. It would be a big lost if the Clippers aren’t able to come to some agreement with Jordan. Coach and General Manager Doc Rivers says that keeping DeAndre is of prime importance.
