Clippers Match Warriors' DeAndre Jordan Offer Sheet, According To Report

The Los Angeles Clippers have matched the Golden State Warriors' four-year, $43 million signed by restricted free agent center DeAndre Jordanreports Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski. Jordan had signed the Warriors' offer on Sunday after rejecting the Clippers' offer for $40 million over five years.

The move came on the heels of L.A.'s winning bid in the Chauncey Billups' amnesty auction. Under a salary cap loophole, the Clippers were able to bid for Billups by being under the cap due to Jordan's tiny salary cap hold, even though the Warriors' $10 million offer sheet was on the table. The Clippers reportedly did not amnesty any players on Monday to make room.

Jordan averaged seven points, seven rebounds and two blocks per game last season. To sign Jordan to the offer sheet, the Warriors waived Jeremy Lin and Charlie Bell, the latter under the amnesty provision, and rescinded the team's qualifying offer to Reggie Williams, making the small forward an unrestricted free agent.
