Cavs' offer for DeAndre Jordan unlikely to move needle for Clippers

Cavs' offer for DeAndre Jordan unlikely to move needle for Clippers

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to be active with less than five hours to go until the National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Cleveland has been very poor this season when it comes to defensive efficiency and rebound rate, two areas which would drastically improve if Jordan was added to their roster, and if reports are to be believed, Cleveland is going to any lengths to make it happen.

But according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Cleveland are trying to enlist the help of a third team to try and bring Jordan to the Cavs.

In its attempt to land Jordan, Cleveland is reportedly offering its own 2018 first-round pick - rather than the more desirable Brooklyn pick, which could land in the top 10 - along with "unwanted" contracts.

"From the Clippers' point of view, they don't want to take back long-term money on Jordan", Wojnarowski continued. A package of Marcin Gortat, Jason Smith (perhaps heading to a third team), Kelly Oubre and a first-round pick has always been my favorite realistic Jordan package.

The Knicks get the Blazers' second-rounder from the Nuggets and Denver gets the Clippers' second-round pick from NY . He started 107 games over his first two National Basketball Association campaigns but didn't start any this season.

Buckle up, National Basketball Association fans!The countdown to the Thursday, February 8, 2018 National Basketball Association trade deadline is here. The Cavaliers have offered their own first-rounder to the Clippers, but Los Angeles wants the higher selection. Cleveland's players know something has to change soon, especially because the trade deadline is but a few days away.

Memphis has listened to trade offers for Tyreke Evans.

Jordan has a $24 million player option next season that he seems likely to decline to become a free agent.
