Jamie Foxx Signing 2015

This is kind of weird coming from the Los Angeles Clippers, considering that DeAndre Jordan has been with the franchise for all of his NBA career.

Jordan is now currently a free agent, and can bolt the Clips if he wants to. The Dallas Mavericks looks to be the team he joins if he leaves Los Angeles.

According to the LA Times, Doc Rivers and the Clippers are trying to sway Jordan by using Jamie Foxx as a recruitment tool:

Doc Rivers tapped into Hollywood in his pursuit of DeAndre Jordan, inviting Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx to a recent dinner with the unrestricted free agent at a swanky Malibu restaurant.

It was just the start of the drama surrounding Jordan’s decision about where to spend next season.

The Clippers have made it clear that retaining Jordan will be their top priority once the NBA’s free-agency period starts at 9:01 p.m. PDT on Tuesday. Rivers and team owner Steve Ballmer are among a contingent of Clippers officials scheduled to meet with Jordan on Thursday in the Beverly Hills office of his agents.

Their presentation is expected to include a video touting Jordan’s career with the Clippers and the benefits of staying with the only NBA franchise he has known in his seven professional seasons.

I think Jordan is worried about being a bigger role on offense for an NBA team than hanging out with Jamie Foxx.
