As Stein notes, the team in the best position to land Jordan appears to be the Dallas Mavericks.

Teams and players can not formally sign contracts until July 6.

Both the Clippers and Mavericks are rebuilding their rosters.

According to several media reports, Jordan has opted out his current deal with the Clippers, a move that will make him an unrestricted free agent at 11:01 p.m. Saturday night. DeAndre Jordan will be joining the Mavs three seasons after spurning them during the moratorium period during the infamous "Indecision".
