DeAndre Jordan spurns the Mavericks to go back to the Clippers

In a bizarre NBA free agency story, DeAndre Jordan agreed to accept a 4-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks but is now returning to the L.A. Clippers.

On Friday, we shared reports that one-and-done Aggie DeAndre Jordan was headed to the Dallas Mavericks for an $81 million deal. Last night, Jordan went back on his agreement with Dallas to rejoin the Los Angeles Clippers, the team he's played with since entering the NBA.

Last night's saga began by reading like a hostage situation.

This led to some good internetting.

Everything was finalized just after midnight once free agent signings were permitted by the NBA.
