Cavs' offer for DeAndre Jordan unlikely to move needle for Clippers

For as gifted as Williams is offensively, he's a below-average defender, and sources told Himmelsbach the Celtics would have reservations about pairing the 31-year-old with Kyrie Irving on the NBA's top-ranked defense.

The Los Angeles Clippers traded Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons last week in a stunning blockbuster, and various rumors suggest L.A. also could deal away DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams before Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

The Cavaliers reportedly have made an initial offer for Jordan, per Sam Amick of USA Today.

Jordan, now 29 years of age, has heard his name tossed about in several trade scenarios in recent days. Should Cleveland trade the Nets pick, it is taking the chance of leaving itself hanging high and dry should James walk in the offseason.

The initial attack happened eight kilometers, or roughly five miles, east of the de-confliction line on the Euphrates River. The official said they have not ruled out that Iranian backed-forces might have also been involved in the attack.

However, the Clippers said no. One of their top priorities is clearing space to give themselves the opportunity to pursue high-level free agents in the upcoming off-seasons. If the Cavs are willing to take that gamble for the sake of improving their defense then, as long as they don't sell everything to get him, a deal might be worth it. Avery Bradley came over on an expiring contract, Boban Marjanovic is owed a little over $15 million for the next two seasons, and Tobias Harris is owed a similar amount over the same amount of time.

"From the Clippers' point of view, they don't want to take back long-term money on Jordan", Wojnarowski continued. Jordan is now owed roughly $46.7 million total over the next two seasons and salaries need to come close to matching for a trade to work.

Colts Name Josh McDaniels Head Coach
Perhaps McDaniels is waiting to see if Belichick is preparing his retirement - Belichick didn't entertain those questions Monday. Patricia did the same after the Patriots' emotional loss, then welcomed the Lions job with open arms less than 24 hours later.

With LeBron James' free agency looming, Cleveland's front office is under huge pressure to make moves to improve the Cavs' roster in a span of four days.
