Mavs Agree to 1-Year Deal with DeAndre Jordan. Although I am a die-hard Mavs fan and think that getting Jordan, especially on a 1-year deal (worth around $24 million), is good for the team and makes for a very interesting and entertaining lineup — DSJ&DAJ&Doncic&Dirk&Barnes(?) — there is another part of me that likes chaos and ridiculous jokes. That part wants Jordan to once again spurn the Mavs and sign with, I don’t know, Golden State or something. Anyway, that’s all that happened during the first weekend of NBA free agency and absolutely nothing else at all.
