DeAndre Jordan | Clippers TopEmailComments According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, "the Toronto Raptors, New Orleans Hornets, Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves are teams with salary-cap space considering multiyear offers for DeAndre Jordan." Jordan is a restricted free agent of the Clippers, so the team has the opportunity to match any offer sheet Jordan may sign with one of these teams. The Clippers may indeed be inclined to match as Jordan is part of their young, promising nucleus along with Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon. Further, if they get into the serious mix for Dwight Howard via trade, the center could be sent to Orlando in return. Shane Battier | Grizzlies TopEmailComments 1 It's been reported the Heat could look to target Shane Battier or Grant Hill for help on the wing, and now comes this from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Wojnarowski reported via league sources that "Miami Heat president Pat Riley has his franchise in strong position to sell Shane Battier on signing" with the Heat. Added Wojnarowski: "Battier has been a primary target in free agency for the Heat, and sources say the pitch of Riley, coach Erik Spoelstra and key Heat players could ultimately confirm Battier's strong feelings about chasing a championship in Miami." The Heat could have more need for Battier should they amnesty Mike Miller and not bring back James Jones in free agency. Chris Paul | Hornets TopEmailComments When talking about potential landing spots for Chris Paul via trade, the Knicks, Lakers and Clippers have surfaced as suitors. But Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated also lists the Warriors as a potential landing spot. From Amick: "Sources told SI.com that Stephen Curry and rookie guard Klay Thompson were both targeted by the Hornets as the desired pieces in recent discussions regarding Paul, though those talks are believed to have gone dormant for now. Since taking over the Warriors in 2010, owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber are determined to change the losing culture and second-rate perception of their franchise, and it should come as no surprise that they want to woo of star of Paul's ilk." Curry would provide a decent replacement for Paul at the point if these talks were ever to pick back up again. And, for now, such an offer would likely be better than anything the asset-less Knicks would be able to provide via trade.
