OAKLAND, Calif. A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the Los Angeles Clippers have matched Golden State's 42.7 million, four-year offer for center DeAndre Jordan.
Golden State signed Jordan to the offer sheet Sunday night. As a restricted free agent, the Clippers had three days to decide whether to match the contract.
The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose the information, says Los Angeles decided Monday to match the offer and keep Jordan.
The 6-foot-11 Jordan has emerged as an athletic and promising young center in three years in Los Angeles. He averaged 7.1 points and 7.2 rebounds in 25 minutes per game last season.
The Warriors also unsuccessfully pursued former Dallas center Tyson Chandler, watching him go to the New York Knicks.
