The Mavericks and Jordan agreed quickly after free agency opened Sunday on a one-year contract at roughly the $24.1 million he was set to make with the Clippers next season, two people with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. Adding Jordan alongside Dennis Smith Jr. and Yogi Ferrell will hopefully make the team more competitive. There was a possibility that the Clippers and Mavericks could have worked out a trade.

For five consecutive seasons from 2012-13 to 2016-17, Jordan led the National Basketball Association in field goal percentage and effective field goal percentage.

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

Jordan appeared to confirm the deal on his Twitter account. Seven years later, the Mavericks made a strong play for Jordan, who agreed to sign with them as a free agent. Marc Stein of the New York Times reported Dallas was making him their top priority after he declined his option with the Clippers. He chose to stay in L.A. following a saga that took the league by storm.

Three years after they almost came together, the Mavericks finally get the center they have long coveted.

The 6-foot-11 Jordan has averaged at least 12 points each of the past three years. He is a native of the state and starred at Texas A&M before being drafted by the Clippers with the 35th pick in the 2008 Draft.

Dirk is nowhere near the player he used to be, but he still averaged 12.0 points and 5.7 rebounds while playing a career-low 24.7 minutes per game last season.

The Clippers braced themselves for the possibility of losing Jordan by acquiring center Marcin Gortat from the Orlando Magic last week for guard Austin Rivers.
