If you're a center and you can walk and chew gum in this league, you make $10 million (a year)," said 6-11 Kim Hughes, a former NBA center and Clippers head coach. When he was with the Clippers, Hughes tutored Jordan, a raw 6-11 prospect. But Hughes had to do a double take when he saw the offer sheet Golden State tendered Jordan and was matched by the Clippers. "DeAndre Jordan found Golden State, and he is overpaid, no question," Hughes said. "But I love DeAndre. I'm happy for him. He's worked so hard."
