Here's What Cavs Offered Clippers In Failed DeAndre Jordan Deal

DeAndre Jordan Clippers Cavaliers

According to Wednesday's report, Cleveland general manager Koby Altman had approval from ownership to send a package in exchange for Jordan that included Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Shumpert and the Cavs' 2018 first-round pick.

Altman stayed on the phone with Winger on Thursday morning, keeping the DeAndre Jordan deal within reach.

A trade for Jordan would have rebuilt the Cavs in totally different way than their trades with the Lakers, Jazz, and Kings did.

Last Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline was probably the best of the decade. Cleveland blew the doors off the Celtics in Boston on Sunday and held off the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

Altman and Michael Winger made calls to try to find a third team. The four new arrivals combined for 97 points (on 51 percent shooting), 28 rebounds, 15 assists, eight steals and four blocks in the two games. But that's business. And right now, LeBron James and the Cavs are probably happy with what they have. But that's not all; they've also won four in a row.

Philippines complains about China naming undersea features of Philippine Rise
The Philippines has already complained about China's move, amid concerns Beijing may be claiming more maritime territory. This happened during the administrations of former President Benigno Aquino III and President Rodrigo Duterte.

That third team never materialized and the trade talks broke down.

As it turned out, the Cavs consummated their deal with the Lakers, then worked out a three-way trade with Utah and Sacramento that netted them George Hill and Rodney Hood.

Cleveland eventually sent Frye and its first-rounder to the Los Angeles Lakers along with Isaiah Thomas in the Clarkson/Nance deal.

When Altman visited with James in the Cavaliers' practice facility a week ago, he let him know that there were still talks alive with the LA Clippers on a Jordan deal. Still, the depth that the new dudes now provide is encouraging, too, so long as Clarkson, Hood and Nance continue to make a consistent impact. National Basketball Association insiders don't expect a team to offer Jordan a max contract starting at S$35 million (AU$45 million) per season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Clippers were close to finalising a deal for DeAndre Jordan ahead of the February 8 NBA Trade Deadline, according to a new report. According to Wojnarowski, that's the risk Altman was willing to take.
