When the Clippers hosted “The Playbook”, Jerry West stated Deandre Jordan turned down a contract. DJ immediately retweeted a puzzled emoji, as if to state that he was never offered a contract.
After the season ended, DJ spoke with the LA Times, stating that he’s had zero discussions with the Clippers about a new contract. In another strange disconnect, Lawrence Frank (EVP of Basketball Ops) stated something entirely different during the team’s exit interview. Frank claimed that the Clippers have had open discussion with Deandre, and that there’s a contract waiting for him next year if he wants it.
The saga has been a strange ongoing battle of “he said, she said” that doesn’t seem to end. It’ll be interesting to see how the whole situation plays out, but the money is on Deandre Jordan not returning to the Clippers next year.
