And there is something that could take that excitement level even higher: Getting free-agent DeAndre Jordan back on the team. Jordan has been considering an offer from the Clippers and one that is expected to come from the Golden State Warriors. The Clippers have said they will match any offer that Jordan, 6 feet 11 and 265 pounds, receives. The Clippers reportedly have offered Jordan, who made $854,389 last season, a five-year deal worth more than $40 million. Executives around the NBA who are not authorized to speak publically on the matter said Jordan might get a four-year, $42-million offer from the Warriors. "I'm assuming he'll be back here in uniform," said Neil Olshey, the Clippers' vice president of basketball operations. "But right now, I don't control that part of the process. He'll be back in here and he'll be excited to be here, and I know this is where he wants to be." Griffin, Jordan's best friend on the team, has been in contact with him. Griffin wants Jordan back. "He's got to take care of his business," Griffin said. "I wish him the best. But he's still very much a part of this team in our minds. So, we'll see what happens."
