Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has had his named mentioned in NBA trade talks and rumors several times over the past two seasons, and they all included high-caliber players in exchange.

Jordan says that he took all the trade talk as a sign of respect from opposing teams.

“If I go, that just means that, honestly, somebody else wants you,” Jordan told RealGM. “As long as someone else is interested, and you’re wanted, you can’t feel negative. I never listened to the s— on the news or the radio. I just wanted to get better and be ready for the season. Whatever jersey I had on, I really didn’t care to be honest with you.

“And if I got traded, then s—, so what? I’m still going to be in the NBA. I’m still going to be playing the game that I love, just for a different team.”

With Kevin Garnett and company on the Brooklyn Nets, Jordan should now be firmly entrenched in L.A.

Jordan averaged about nine points and seven rebounds per game for the Clippers last season. The 25-year-old enters his sixth NBA season with averages of seven points and seven rebounds per game to his name.
