Teams and players can not formally sign contracts until July 6. The Mavericks reportedly did not want to surrender draft compensation in a trade to acquire Jordan, and the Clippers were reportedly resistant to taking veteran Wes Matthews back in a deal. Instead, he's expected to remain a Maverick with the team looking to offer him a new deal, albeit a cheaper one, per Bobby Marks of ESPN via his colleague, Tim McMahon. Jordan, who will turn 30 next month, could also decline the option and become an unrestricted free agent. Stein does add though that Jordan would have to take a big paycut to sign with the Warriors and that the Dallas Mavericks are still the favorites to sign him.

After not exercising his player option for the 2018-19 season, Jordan was able to explore the market once again to find a situation that made the best use of his talents.

The 29-year-old Jordan averaged 12 points and a career-high 15.2 rebounds in 2017-18.

Win over England not priority, says Belgium coach
If you do not play to win, you are cheating your opponents, deceiving those who are watching, and also fooling yourself. Instead, Sweden and Mexico advanced to the last 16. "The majority of Belgian players, they play in England ".

He's averaged 9.4 points in his career, including at least 10.4 points per game the past five seasons. In 10 National Basketball Association seasons, all with the Clippers, he has career averages of 9.4 points, 10.7 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 1.7 blocks. He will never be great in that area, but making himself less of a liability is a positive sign for his future.
