Lawrence Frank Rumors

Lawrence Frank, the Clippers’ team president, spoke to Jordan about a contract extension last summer and the sides agreed to continue talks after they could not complete a new deal. There did not seem to be any sense of urgency to the negotiations as the 2017-18 got underway. Jordan can opt out of the final season of his contract at season’s end.
Storyline: DeAndre Jordan Extension
DeAndre Jordan, who can become a free agent after the season, has been coming up in trade conversations, with multiple teams talking potential trades. Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank said last month that Jordan will be a “Clipper for life,” muddled matters, as does the limited number of teams who need a center and the size of Jordan’s contract ($22.6 million).
Storyline: DeAndre Jordan Trade?
Rivers remains an elite coach, and it’s a misjudgment to believe that Ballmer moving him out of the front office is a prelude to running him out of the organization. If the Clippers’ new top basketball executive had been anyone else but Frank, Rivers might have walked himself. There’s trust there, and a bond. This structure can work for the Clippers, and Rivers could end up signing a coaching extension beyond the two years, $23 million left on his contract.
