Jordan had until 11:59 p.m. ET Friday night to opt in or out of his deal.

The New York Times' Marc Stein reports that the center will be the primary target for the Dallas Mavericks. There was a possibility that the Clippers and Mavericks could have worked out a trade. The Mavs will likely offer Jordan either a one-year deal in the neighborhood of his player option (around $20-24 million) or sign him to a multi-year deal at a lower annual price.

DeAndre Jordan's future with the Los Angeles Clippers has been up in the air for months, as the veteran center's contract possesses a player option for the 2018-19 campaign.

The Times reported earlier this week the Clippers had given Jordan and his agent, Jeff Schwartz, permission to seek a trade.

Dallas' decision to decline Nowitzki's contract is all about giving the team flexibility to add more star power. He chose to stay in L.A. following a saga that took the league by storm.

Nowitzki, 41, averaged 12.0 points and 5.7 rebounds in less than 25 minutes of action per game last season. Rivers, Paul and several of Jordan's then-teammates visited his home in Houston to convince him to return. Last season, the Clippers had Jordan, Montrezl Harrell and Boban Marjanovic in their center rotation.
