The NBA Free Agency sweepstakes are about to get started, and the Dallas Mavericks reportedly would prefer to just trade for DeAndre Jordan outright.

Per Marc Stein of The New York Times, the Los Angeles Clippers have granted permission to Jordan to explore trade scenarios with other teams while he considers whether to opt into the final season of his deal.
The Dallas Mavericks are actively exploring trade possibilities with the Los Angeles Clippers and the former All-N.B.A. center DeAndre Jordan in hopes of finding a workable deal to acquire Jordan this week, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

Three years after Jordan’s controversial decision to back out of a verbal commitment to sign with the Mavericks — choosing instead to stay with the Clippers — Dallas is spending the final few days before the start of free agency trying to execute a trade for Jordan, according to the people, who were not authorized to discuss the trade talks publicly.
Jordan, like LeBron James, has a deadline of Friday at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time to decide whether to invoke his player option for next season, which is valued at $24.1 million.
