Jordan famously backed out of a free agent deal with the Mavs in 2015.

Both the Clippers and Mavericks are rebuilding their rosters. The mechanism is different, but Jordan's goals are accomplished: he gets his money and his contract year, he gets to try again in the supposedly free agent-friendly summer of 2019, and he gets the ideal team to amplify his skills and raise his value.

Jordan had until 11:59 p.m. ET Friday to make a decision on whether to exercise the option. He went from an unheralded second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M in 2009 to become one of the best big men in the league.

Stein reported that the Mavericks were unwilling to give up assets in a trade with the Clippers.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Mavs are actively in trade talks with the Los Angeles Clippers in an effort to land Jordan this week before free agency begins on July 1.

At least 25 people were killed and almost 5,000 others were arrested in the protests in late December and early January. Mr Rouhani's government has struggled with the economic problems, which have seen high unemployment.

Jordan had a player option on the final year of his contract.

Since the change of heart by Jordan, the most productive center for the Mavericks was their immediate replacement - Zaza Pachulia in 2015-16.

Dallas moved up two spots in the draft last week to get the Slovenian guard, who was taken third overall by Atlanta while the Mavericks selected former Oklahoma scoring sensation Trae Young for the Hawks.

DJ, who had spent his entire 10-year career with the organisation, averaged 12 points and a career-high 15.2 rebounds per game this past campaign.

Jordan did, however, improve his free throw shooting, going from 48.2 per cent in 2016-17 to 58.0 per cent last season.
