DeAndre Jordan is signing a one-year contract with the Mavericks, according to a report from the New York Times. He will make close to $24.1 million in 2018-19, the report says.

Jordan appeared to confirm the deal on his Twitter account.

Jordan opted out of his contract with the Clippers this week. He had reportedly been considering accepting the player option in an effort to facilitate a trade to Dallas.

The 29-year-old has spent all 10 of his NBA seasons with the Clippers. He averaged 12 points and 15.2 rebounds in 2017-18.

Jordan made the All-Star team in 2016-17 when he tallied 12.7 points and 13.8 rebounds per contest.

The former Texas A&M center verbally agreed to a max contract with Dallas as a free agent in 2015 before he backed out of the deal and re-signed with Los Angeles.

The Warriors had also reportedly been interested in possibly signing Jordan.

All signings will not be official until the end of the NBA moratorium period on 6 July.
