DeAndre Jordan apologizes to Mark Cuban, Mavericks

He doesn't use an emoji, though.

DeAndre Jordan apologized to Mark Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks and their fans in two tweets on Friday night.

It was his first public statement since deciding to re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers after making a verbal commitment to the Mavericks.

In a bizarre saga that played out in emojis in the world of Twitter, Jordan had remained silent throughout.

Cuban was dumbfounded by the radio silence from Jordan and Chandler Parsons spoke out against the defensive stalwart while Jordan's Clippers teammates and coach stood up for the big man.

Jordan -- who signed a four-year, $87.7 million dollar deal -- at least took one step in mending his relationship with Cuban and the Mavericks. Only time will tell. A well placed emoji in that tweet may have helped seal the deal.
