DeAndre Jordan Took Trade Talks As Sign Of Respect
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has had his named mentioned in trade times several times over the past two seasons, and they all included high-caliber players in exchange.
Jordan told RealGM that he took all the trade talk as a sign of respect from opposing teams.
“If I go, that just means that, honestly, somebody else wants you,” Jordan told RealGM on Tuesday. “As long as someone else is interested, and you’re wanted, you can’t feel negative. I never listened to the s— on the news or the radio. I just wanted to get better and be ready for the season. Whatever jersey I had on, I really didn’t care to be honest with you.
“And if I got traded, then s—, so what? I’m still going to be in the NBA. I’m still going to be playing the game that I love, just for a different team.”
With Garnett and company in Brooklyn, Jordan should now be firmly entrenched in L.A.
