Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has had his named mentioned in trade times several times over the past two seasons, and they all included high-caliber players in exchange. Jordan told RealGM that he took all the trade talk as a sign of respect from opposing teams. “If I go, that just means that, honestly, somebody else wants you,” Jordan told RealGM on Tuesday. “As long as someone else is interested, and you’re wanted, you can’t feel negative. I never listened to the s— on the news or the radio. I just wanted to get better and be ready for the season. Whatever jersey I had on, I really didn’t care to be honest with you. “And if I got traded, then s—, so what? I’m still going to be in the NBA. I’m still going to be playing the game that I love, just for a different team.” With Garnett and company in Brooklyn, Jordan should now be firmly entrenched in L.A.
