Portland Trail Blazers to Try and Trade for Los Angeles Clippers DeAndre Jordan?

The NBA rumor mill is in full swing today and the latest rumor has the Portland Trail Blazers showing interest in Los Angeles Clippers big man, DeAndre Jordan.

Jordan of course was nearly traded to the Boston Celtics before the NBA pulled the plug last week and now, clearly unwanted in Los Angeles, it appears as if the Clippers are trying to find a potential suitor.

Enter the Portland Trail Blazers, who apparently have interest.

Also on the Clippers’ front, now that a deal involving Kevin Garnett is off the table, they must decide what to do with DeAndre Jordan. It might be difficult to bring back a guy the franchise was so obviously ambivalent about keeping this summer. Multiple teams have expressed interest in Jordan, including Portland…

The connection to Portland makes sense on a few different levels. For one, the Blazers could certianly use the size of Jordan but more than that, the Blazers are now run by Neil Olshey who drafted DeAndre out of the University of Texas.
