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.
