DeAndre Jordan

DeAndre Jordan became somewhat of a journeyman last season after being traded to the Knicks from the Mavericks, who he signed with in Free Agency a year ago.

The Houston-native has had a dip in production but was never put in a position to succeed once he was traded to New York.

Even in a down year, Jordan still averaged a double-double with 11 points and 13.1 rebounds.

A Jordan signing only makes sense if Houston is indeed able to pull off a trade for Jimmy Butler which would likely involve moving Clint Capela.

Jordan’s lone All-Star appearance came with Chris Paul as a teammate so a reunion might be good for both parties.
