C - DEN
According to Mike Singer, C DeAndre Jordan has inked a contract with the Denver Nuggets.
After a rough 2021-2022 season in which Jordan was ousted by the Lakers and benched by the 76ers, he decided to sign as a backup center in Denver. With little presence behind Nikola Jokic after the trade of JaMychal Green, the Nuggets prioritized getting a rim-protecting big man like Jordan for when Jokic is off the floor. At 33-years-old, I'm not sold on how much he has to offer for fantasy or in real life.
DeAndre Jordan (trade) will be unavailable for Friday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Jordan, who was just picked up by the 76ers, will not be available to make his debut on Friday. He is expected to be with the team for Saturday's game against the Miami Heat, but it isn't clear if he will suit up or not. Fantasy managers should pay attention to how the veteran center is utilized when he is available to play.
Barring an unexpected waiver claim, center DeAndre Jordan is expected to sign with the 76ers.
Jordan was released by the Lakers, and he is likely to pass through waivers without getting claimed. If he isn't clained before 5 PM EST today, he is expected to sign with the 76ers. This is a good move for both sides, considering the team is shallow at the position and the veteran center will see an increase in minutes.
The 76ers will be heavily pursuing DeAndre Jordan, who is expected to be waived by the Lakers.
The Sixers have been lacking center depth since trading Andre Drummond, so signing a solid veteran like Jordan makes sense for both sides. If a deal does get done, the 33-year old will find himself in a situation to see real minutes and fantasy value in Philadelphia. Fantasy managers should monitor this situation closely to see his landing spot.
According to NBA reporter Shams Charania on Twitter, DeAndre Jordan expected to be waived by the Lakers
After playing nine minutes during Sunday's epic loss to the Pelicans and having a Shaqtin' A Fool moment, the Lakers decided to waive Jordan. With the newly open roster spot, the Lakers plan on signing D.J. Augustin to their roster. The veteran guard has played in 34 games this season with the Rockets averaging 5.4 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 2.2 assists.
