DeAndre Jordan puts Kevin Durant on spot: Why didn’t you sign with Clippers?
Kevin Durant had reportedly narrowed his decision down to five or six teams before choosing the Golden State Warriors. One of his potential suitors at the time was the Los Angeles Clippers, and DeAndre Jordan wants to know why they didn’t win the K.D. sweepstakes.
While Durant was speaking to reporters at Team USA practice on Wednesday, Jordan put him on the spot.

“How come I couldn’t get you to come to the Clippers?” he asked.
Durant, who was clearly caught off-guard, said he’d “talk about that another time.”
Jordan was joking, of course, but he might want to be careful with that. If the Clippers big man wants to get into uncomfortable free agency talk, there’s nothing more awkward than what happened with him and the Dallas Mavericks last offseason. Jordan is lucky Durant didn’t bring that up in response.
