Report: Raptors have discussed DeAndre Jordan trade
DeAndre Jordan remains very much available ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, and a new team has reportedly entered the fray.
According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Toronto Raptors have tried to involve themselves in trade discussions with the Los Angeles Clippers centering around Jordan. They may, however, require a third team to realistically complete any trade.
They would likely need a third team to help facilitate, but the Raptors have tried to work their way into the DeAndre Jordan trade mix, league sources say

Acquiring Jordan would give the Raptors a potent interior player to go with one of the league’s best backcourts, so you can see the appeal here from their perspective.
One team has been linked to Jordan all along, and is also looking to potentially get a third team involved. The Jordan sweepstakes will certainly be a big storyline ahead of the deadline, and there seems to be a fairly good chance that something will happen.
