Clippers To Match DeAndre Jordan Offer Sheet

The Los Angeles Clippers will match the reported four-year, $40 million offer sheet made to their restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan by the Golden State Warriors Saturday, according to a source.

Jordan averaged 10.0 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per 36 minutes during the 10-11 season. Jordan started 66 games and averaged 25.6 minutes.

The decision to match Jordan's offer sheet will likely lead to a trade of Chris Kaman, according to a separate source.

"That's a lot of money for a guy who hasn't really proved anything yet, but it's cheaper than what losing Blake Griffin would do to their fan base," one league executive said.
