Sixers frontrunners to sign DeAndre Jordan

- by

The Philadelphia 76ers are emerging as front-runners to acquire center DeAndre Jordan either as a waiver claim or a free-agent signing, sources told ESPN on Monday. The Sixers have been aggressive in pursuit of a backup center since including Andre Drummond in the trade-deadline deal to acquire James Harden from the Brooklyn Nets, sources said, and the Lakers’ waiving of Jordan on Monday moves the Sixers closer to filling that roster hole.

Last day for NBA teams to waive players and have them retain playoff eligibility. We’ve already seen/had reported a handful of players waived/to be waived (some took buyouts):
Goran Dragic
DeAndre Jordan
Tomas Satoransky
Tristan Thompson
Let’s see if anyone else joins them. – 8:35 AM

ESPN story on the Philadelphia 76ers emerging as a frontrunner to land center DeAndre Jordan: PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Lakers cost themselves roughly $5M in tax payments and a small trade exception by not just sending cash to another team to take DeAndre Jordan at the trade deadline. Hey, it’s the Buss’s money, but that’s some FO malpractice right there. – 8:06 PM
Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
DeAndre Jordan is so bad that a thin Lakers team mired in a tailspin waives him and yet we’re having conversations about how Jordan is a valuable target for legit championship contenders.
What are we doing here? Why is this a thing? Can we make it stop? – 8:02 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
DeAndre Jordan is washed and shouldn’t be in a playoff rotation. I’d play Willie Cauley-Stein or Paul Reed over him at this point. – 7:49 PM

Does D.J. Augustin address more pressing needs than DeAndre Jordan? Absolutely. But is he as good at throwing passes into the third row? Only time will tell. AK – 7:46 PM
Jon Johnson @jonjohnsonwip
DeAndre Jordan is a Doc Rivers guy. Wouldn’t be a big upgrade, but an upgrade. – 7:38 PM

The Lakers are planning to waive DeAndre Jordan and sign DJ Augustin, per @Shams Charania. PM
