NBA Free Agency: DeAndre Jordan Signs 4-Year, $43 Million Offer Sheet With Warriors

Los Angeles Clippers restricted free-agent center DeAndre Jordan has signed a four-year, $43 million offer sheet with the Golden State Warriors, his agent tells Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. The Clippers will now have three days to match the offer or they will lose him.

Jordan averaged just 7.1 points and 7.2 rebounds per game last season, but good centers are hard to find, and Jordan is just 23 years old. The Warriors are certainly paying him for future production rather than past production. Jordan developed a good rapport with Blake Griffin in the Clippers' frontcourt last season, so there's a chance the Clippers match.

To clear enough cap space to make the offer, the Warriors released Charlie Bell using the one-time amnesty clause and rescinded their qualifying offer to Reggie Williams, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports. Bell had one year and $4.099 million left on his contract.
