Cavs working on getting 3rd team for DeAndre Jordan deal

Top NBA buyout candidates: Tyreke Evans, Marco Belinelli, Joe Johnson lead the list

Despite plenty of rumors and speculation, the Los Angeles Clippers did not trade center DeAndre Jordan before Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

If the Clippers' trades of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul serve as any indicator, a pairing of undesirable contracts and a late first-round pick should not be enough for the Cavs to land a player of Jordan's caliber.

Since Jordan can leave for nothing as a free agent in July, the Clippers may regret the decision to keep him.

Jordan could help Toronto win the Eastern Conference this season if results go their way, especially if you take into account how much the Cavaliers have been struggling.

ESPN's Zach Lowe reported that the Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers, and Washington Wizards have all explored the trade market around Jordan.

There was plenty of movement before the 3 p.m. ET deadline, but Jordan stayed put despite several teams reportedly showing interest. Finally, Jordan's expiring contract was appealing to teams looking to clear cap space.

However, diving into free agency may be a gamble for Jordan.

These same things make it tough for a team to justify trading a big haul for Jordan. Jordan would be one of the top players available, but it's unclear if teams will be willing to top the $24 million per year that he would make next season. He's a difference-maker, for sure, but he might not be enough on his own to take a team to contention status. With Cleveland offering perhaps the most enticing asset out of all teams gunning for the center - Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick, which would aid the Clippers' rebuilding efforts - it seems like the Cavs have the best shot of landing Jordan if LA suddenly gets desperate.

However, the Clippers said no.
