Jamie Foxx Recruiting DeAndre Jordan For Clippers


The L.A. Clippers are pulling out the big guns in free agency, and I’m not talking about star players either.

Despite DeAndre Jordan already being a resident of L.A., Doc Rivers and Clippers brass have a star from Tinseltown involved with recruitment according to the L.A. Times.

Doc Rivers tapped into Hollywood in his pursuit of DeAndre Jordan, inviting Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx to a recent dinner with the unrestricted free agent at a swanky Malibu restaurant.

It was just the start of the drama surrounding Jordan’s decision about where to spend next season.

The Clippers have made it clear that retaining Jordan will be their top priority once the NBA’s free-agency period starts at 9:01 p.m. PDT on Tuesday. Rivers and team owner Steve Ballmer are among a contingent of Clippers officials scheduled to meet with Jordan on Thursday in the Beverly Hills office of his agents.

Their presentation is expected to include a video touting Jordan’s career with the Clippers and the benefits of staying with the only NBA franchise he has known in his seven professional seasons.

Jordan isn’t worried about Jamie Foxx, but more concerned about being a second option on offense, despite not having much of an offensive game to speak of.
