NBA Rumors: DeAndre Jordan Offered Five-Year, $40 Million Contract By Clippers, According To Report

The Los Angeles Clippers are determined to keep restricted free-agent center DeAndre Jordan, and have apparently made a formal offer to him, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. That offer is for five years and $40 million.

However, it appears unlikely that Jordan will accept the offer. That's because Jordan is "destined" to sign an offer sheet with another team, which would force the Clippers to match, Wojnarowski reports. With several teams having lots of cap room and in need of a center, it's likely that someone will put together an offer more lucrative than the one the Clippers proposed. In that case, the Clippers would then have three days to match if they want to keep their young center.

Jordan is seen as mostly a dunker on offense at this point, but he has improved his rebounding and defense and is still just 23 years old.
