“The Warriors had hoped to sign Dallas Mavericks free-agent center Tyson Chandler, but he is nearing a four-year, $58 million agreement with the New York Knicks. While the Warriors’ offer sheet wasn’t finalized, one source said the team is prepared to begin Jordan’s contract at $10 million next season.”
“The Clippers would have three days to match any offer sheet Jordan signs. Denver Nuggets free-agent center Nene hasn’t drawn much interest from the Warriors.”
But Nene has drawn interest from the Nets, who are reportedly close to offering him a four-year deal in the range of $60 million – $65 million dollars.
If Nene and Chandler’s deals get finalized soon, don’t be surprised if that $10 million dollar a year offer for Jordan goes up just a bit. With Caron Butler on board, the Clippers are virtually guaranteed to match whatever offer sheet Jordan signs elsewhere.
As for the whole Chris Paul thing? It’s going to be a few days for all the smoke to clear and for any talks to ramp back up. Sit tight.
