DeAndre Jordan and the Los Angeles Clippers have discussed a contract extension, but talks have stalled.
Jordan would have to earn less with an extension than he could if he waited until the offseason where his starting salary could start at $35 million.
"If they want me, yeah, I'd love to be here," Jordan said. "But I don't have an extension, do I? So we'll see."
Jordan is also negotiating without an agent at the moment after parting ways with Dan Fegan.
"I haven't had the best experiences with agents," said Jordan.
The center market could be soft in 2018.
"We want DJ back," Doc Rivers said. "We think we can win a title building around him and Blake. You also need room in the budget for other people."
