Clippers making last-ditch push to steal Jordan back from Mavs

DALLAS (AP) – Two people with knowledge of the situation say the Los Angeles Clippers are making a last-ditch push to keep free agent center DeAndre Jordan from joining the Dallas Mavericks.

Jordan and the Mavericks agreed to terms on a four-year, $80 million contract last Friday. The Clippers can offer a five-year deal worth even more once contracts can be signed starting Thursday.

One person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press the Clippers sent a contingent to Houston to make a personal pitch to Jordan, a group that includes Blake Griffin and Paul Pierce. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the details.

A second person tells AP that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is in Houston to work with Jordan.
