Jordan is the only major impact signing the Clippers can make this summer, and the team knows it. “We don’t need to go and get a max player, except for the one we have,” Rivers said. “... DJ loves it here. We know that, but you can’t take that for granted. There’s going to be a lot of teams (that want him), and if they’re not, there are a lot of dumb teams out there. There’s going to be a lot of teams coming after him that have money.” Orange County Register

You’d think that would do it, especially with Commissioner Adam Silver sending up trial balloons, saying there will be a “full-throated discussion.” Unfortunately, not everyone agrees it’s an issue. In fact, team officials who do may be in the minority. “Change the rule? For what?” asked an Eastern Conference GM who is on the NBA’s Competition Committee. “For DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard? Learn to shoot free throws.” Forbes.com

Unfortunately, not everyone agrees it’s an issue. In fact, team officials who do may be in the minority. “Change the rule? For what?” asked an Eastern Conference GM who is on the NBA’s Competition Committee. “For DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard? Learn to shoot free throws.” A league source says that almost 80% of this season’s hacking was done to five players: Jordan, Andre Drummond of Detroit and Howard, Josh Smith and Joey Dorsey of Houston.

Dwain Price: DeAndre Jordan becomes a FA on July 1 and can make $108.3 mill over 5 yrs with the #Clippers, or $80.7 mill over 4 yrs with other teams. If DeAndre Jordan decides to sign a FA contract with the #Mavs, they have an excellent FT shooting coach in Gary Boren who can help him. Rajon Rondo's FT% this season went from 33.3% in 22 games with the #Celtics to 45.2% in 46 games with the #Mavs. It was an improvement. Twitter @DwainPrice
