Jordan had a prior agreement to the Dallas Mavericks on a four-year 80 million dollar deal, but he of course backed out. His contract with the Clippers will pay him 110 million over the next five years.
DeAndre Jordan's max deal with the Clippers is 5 years at roughly $110 million. It was 4 years at about $81 million in Dallas.

A ton of Clippers players and head coach Doc Rivers flew out to Houston to meet with DeAndre Jordan after Jordan called Rivers and told him that he was having second thoughts about signing with the Mavericks. That lead to the emjoi war on Twitter, and it also lead to the Mavericks and Cuban not being able to get anything out of Jordan. So yeah it was pretty crazy.
Jordan averaged 11.5 points, 15 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks per game in 82 regular season games. Jordan’s contract will be a four-year deal that features a player option for the fifth year of the deal that he also agreed to.
