The latest DeAndre Jordan trade rumors cite the Bucks, Raptors, Wizards, and Timberwolves as likely suitors.
As of a report late last week from Bleacher Report, the LA Clippers have plenty of options with regards to what they can do with big man DeAndre Jordan. All four of the latest suitors hail from the Eastern Conference, and they could all definitely use the veteran big man’s services.
Things are continuing to crumble in Los Angeles with the Clippers, and it’s unfortunate to see a talented center like Jordan having his time wasted with a franchise that had to get on its hands and knees and then some to keep him around.
Regardless of how you feel about the rest of the circus that is the Clippers organization at the moment, the one truth that holds in times like this is that trades make a difference. Los Angeles needs a change of pace, new faces, and they also need to completely gut the core that didn’t get them anywhere.

They’ve already dealt Chris Paul, who expressed his unhappiness in LA with Doc Rivers after being traded to Houston. Blake Griffin is dealing with yet another injury that has him sidelined for a considerable amount of time.
So the bottom line in saying that is the Clippers are out of excuses for hanging on to DeAndre Jordan. In addition to Paul and Griffin, Luc Mbah a Moute and J.J. Redick also abandoned ship in the summer time.
After a 4-0 start that surprised everybody, the Clippers are in second place despite losing their last three games, having an 8-14 record, and losing 14 of their last 18 overall. This is solely because of the fact that the Suns, Lakers, and Kings are in no position to challenge the Warriors, and also related to the fact that the Clippers are a finger’s slip away from having it all spiral even more out of control.
With that being said, here’s an assessment of how the LA Clippers can get a fair deal and bang for their buck while they still can with each of the latest suitors.
