DeAndre Jordan declines his option, essentially ending tenure with Clippers

The Dallas Mavericks on Friday night declined Dirk Nowitzki's $5 million team option for next season to make him a free agent and maximize their financial flexibility this off-season, according to two people familiar with the decision.

Dallas also intends to decline the $5 million club option on Dirk Nowitzki's contract and re-sign him once its salary structure is more settled, the person told the AP on condition of anonymity because the sides are not publicly commenting on moves ahead of free agency opening Sunday.

However, Jordan won't be a free agent for long.

Whatever proposal Jordan's agent, Jeff Schwartz, develops with the Mavericks, the Clippers aren't sure if it would benefit them to do a sign-and-trade deal, said the executives.

MAVS BOUND? DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers decides to test the free agency.

The Mavs have missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time since the first two years of Nowitzki's career, bottoming out with a 24-58 campaign last season. At the last moment, the Los Angeles Clippers camped out at Jordan's house, while persuading Jordan to reverse his choice to join the Dallas Mavericks and officially sign a new deal with the franchise.

For those who want to be literal: Sure, there's a greater-than-zero chance Jordan returns.

Obviously, a starting lineup of Jordan, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green would be flat-out ridiculous. Dallas hoped Nerlens Noel could become a significant piece after trading for him at the deadline in 2017.
