The Nets will not make a qualifying offer to Jerome Jordan before June 30, although he could return, according to league sources. The move is essentially a bookkeeping move to give the Nets more flexibility. Jordan would have become a restricted free agent if the Nets had made the offer.
A league source said the team has no immediate plans to fill its currently open 15th and final roster spot in the wake of Davies being released. Like Morris, Jerome Jordan and rookie Cory Jefferson — both of whom had partial guarantees — became fully guaranteed by remaining on the roster.
It is “unlikely” they waive anyone else, a team source told The Brooklyn Game. The Nets have three more non-guaranteed players on their roster — guard Darius Morris, center Jerome Jordan, and rookie forward Cory Jefferson. Jefferson is currently in the D-League with the Maine Red Claws, and Morris & Jordan provide much-needed depth at the point guard and center positions, where the Nets have dealt with injuries throughout the season.
Nets Daily: Brandon Davis, waived today, had no guarantee. Neither does @Darius Morris $75K guaranteed to @CoryJay34 $100K for @jerome_jordan They stay
Nets Daily: In two weeks, #Nets have to decide whether to keep @Darius Morris @jerome_jordan @CoryJay34 and Brandon Davies. Jan 10 is guarantee day
The Brooklyn Nets have signed free agent center Jerome Jordan, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not released. Jordan spent last season with Virtus Bologna in the Italian League, after the 7’0” center split the 2012-13 season playing in the NBA Development League for the Reno Bighorns (24 games) and the Los Angeles D-Fenders (18 games). Jordan was named to the 2013 All-NBA D-League Third Team after averaging 12.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 42 games (36 starts).
Virtus Bologna made official the signing of Jerome Jordan for the coming season. The big man with Jamaican passport spent last season in D-League.
Jerome Jordan agreed to terms with Virtus Bologna, a source told Sportando. The Jamaican big man spent last season in D-League with BigHorns and D-Fenders.

Aleksandar Petrovic won’t be confirmed by Virtus Bologna after the tryout period. The Italiam team is on the market looking for a big man. The hot name is Jerome Jordan, according to Il Corriere di Bologna.
Other bigs on the Knicks’ radar include (via sources): Cole Aldrich, Hamed Haddadi, Jerome Jordan, Gani Lawal, Shavlik Randolph, who was waived by the Celtics on Thursday, and Henry Sims. Jeremy Tyler, who played on the Knicks’ summer league team, has received a training camp invite.
While in Las Vegas, the Knicks will be closely monitoring bigs Jerome Jordan, Liam McMorrow and Jeremy Tyler, who finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds in the team’s summer league debut Friday. Tyler has the most NBA experience out of the three, playing in 63 games since 2011 for the Warriors and Hawks.
Former Knick Jerome Jordan will be playing on the team’s summer league squad in 2013, but he also envisions a key role with the organization entering next season. And he has a confident message for them. “I’m ready to play,” Jordan told ESPNNewYork.com. “It was a tough year with the team [in 2011-12]. There was a lot of pressure. I’m just trying to be physically and mentally ready to play on both ends of the floor. Defensively, block shots and rebound, and then on the offensive end, just try to be comfortable out there.”
Jerome Jordan will continue his career in the Philippines with Talk ‘N Text. The American big man, selected by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2010 NBA Draft with the 44th overall, spent this season in D-League with Reno BigHorns and D-Fenders.

A strong showing at the D-League Showcase propels Jerome Jordan to the No. 1 spot in our Call-Up Rankings, as voted by 10 NBADL executives and coaches. The Jamaican center, who played with the Knicks during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, has been excellent on the boards with averages of 15.6 ppg and 7.9 rpg. Look for Jordan to get a look from teams such as Minnesota, where the injury bug has been virulent among big men.
Marc J. Spears: Ex-Knicks center Jerome Jordan is getting interest from China and is also considering D-League.
(Jerome) Jordan himself struck down the rumours on the Grizzlies blog that he had agreed to employment anywhere. “I know my agent has been talking to a bunch of teams. You know, as a worst-case scenario,” Jordan said. “I don’t know if there’s a deal, per se, in China. But it’s about making it in the NBA this year. I’m about trying to make it in the league and establish myself. I want to be around a long time.”
Marc J. Spears: Grizzlies waive guard/forward Ronald Dupree, center Jerome Jordan and guard Ronald Murray.
An Internet report last week had Jerome Jordan’s bags packed and checked for China. But the 7-foot center was busy trying to navigate how to simply land in Memphis. Jordan spent the past week of Grizzlies training camp making a strong case for a spot on the roster. So any rumor that Jordan had agreed to other employment was news to him. “I know my agent has been talking to a bunch of teams. You know, as a worst-case scenario,” Jordan said. “I don’t know if there’s a deal, per se, in China. But it’s about making it in the NBA this year. I’m about trying to make it in the league and establish myself. I want to be around a long time.”

David ‘Dubi’ Pick: In response to report linking him to China, free agent Jerome Jordan told me: “There’s nothing official. I Wanna stay in Memphis.”
After spending last season with the New York Knicks, big man Jerome Jordan is currently an unrestricted free agent. Jordan was traded to the Houston Rockets as part of the Marcus Camby trade, but was waived by the Rockets several days later. Now, Jordan is working out at Impact Basketball in Los Angeles and waiting to see what his future holds. “It was kind of tough, especially because it was my first time being traded,” Jordan said. “I was looking forward to going to Houston and playing, but then soon after I got waived. The only thing I can control is working hard. I’m just going to keep working hard and be ready when the next opportunity comes.” “I’m just waiting. I know my agent is talking and working for me. I’m trying to wait it out and just keep working. I want to be in a good position to play and compete for a back-up spot. I’m going to keep working hard and show teams that I can play.”
Darren Wolfson: FA Jerome Jordan’s camp has been told the #Twolves are not interested at this time. The camp initiated the talks. Big man search continues.
Though management isn’t commenting publicly, these moves would suggest the Bulls won’t match Asik’s offer, which contains a so-called “poison pill” third-year salary of close to $14.9 million. The Rockets waived Jon Leuer and Jerome Jordan on Wednesday and will sign Asik to his offer sheet when those players clear the 48-hour waiver process.
If the Knicks and Suns can come to terms on a deal, Nash would receive a three-year deal in the $25 million range and Phoenix would receive Shumpert and a handful of cap-friendly contracts such as Toney Douglas, Josh Harrellson and Jerome Jordan. One source told ESPN.com that the Knicks were also trying to recruit a third team to help facilitate the trade.
If they landed Nash via a sign-and-trade with Phoenix, the Knicks would not bepart with point guard Iman Shumpert, who the Suns liked in last year’s draft. New York is willing to part with a package that features Landry Fields, Toney Douglas, $3 million and the non-guaranteed salaries of Dan Gadzuric and Jerome Jordan. Fields is a restricted free agent who could be signed to a deal while Douglas’ contract could be seen as an expiring contract whose salary is more than covered by the cash component. The Suns could waive Gadzuric and Jordan at no cost.
Al Iannazzone: Jerome Jordan and Josh Harrellson are expected to be on the Knicks’ Summer League roster as well as veteran guard Toney Douglas.
A source said Lin and the gang had several bottles of vodka and champagne sent to their table. And all, including the previously alcohol-shy Lin, knocked back the booze while mingling with models. “They were really drowning their sorrows,” an onlooker said. “Jeremy was drinking and was acting tipsy … like a college frat kid.”
