Jun 30, 2015 1:34 PM

DeAndre Jordan is seeking a four-year deal in free agency that includes an opt out after three seasons.

The Clippers could offer Jordan a deal that includes a fifth year worth $27 million.

Jordan also wants a bigger role on offense as he's grown tired of being third in their pecking order behind Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.

Jordan will meet with the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and the Clippers once free agency begins.

A source close to the situation told ESPN on Tuesday that it's "50/50" between the Clippers and Mavericks.

Mavericks Considered Biggest Threat To Sign DeAndre Jordan Away From Clippers

Jun 29, 2015 1:36 AM

The Dallas Mavericks are widely considered the team most likely to persuade DeAndre Jordan to leave the Los Angeles Clippers this offseason.

The New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers also figure to express interest in Jordan.

Chandler Parsons, who regards himself to be Dallas' lead recruiter on free agent matters, visited Jordan in Houston last weekend and traveled to Los Angeles immediately after Thursday's draft to spend more time with the big man.

Jordan and Parsons are both represented by Dan Fegan.

If the Mavs are unsuccessful recruiting Jordan, sources say, they will attempt to re-sign veteran center Tyson Chandler.
