Despite Slash in Minutes, Nets Have no Plans to Buy Out DeAndre Jordan

The Brooklyn Nets are stacked and ready for a playoff run.

In the process of assembling their super team, former All-Star DeAndre Jordan has fallen out of the team’s rotation and despite the drop in playing time, the team has no intentions of engaging on a buyout with the veteran center.

“It’s never been discussed,” said a source close to the team.

The Nets made one of the bigger splashes following the NBA’s Trade Deadline by picking up former All-Stars Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge, both of whom got bought out by their respective teams. The emergence of young big Nic Claxton has also played a big role in Jordan’s relegation to the bench and a far more limited role.

“[Jordan’s] got to stay ready. Who knows when it might be? It might be Sunday. It might be in two weeks. But everyone’s got to continue to prepare and stay ready and see what happens,” Steve Nash said. “We’ve got a lot of centers. We’re going to work through it and see what our rotation is going to be come playoff time.”

Jordan signed a four-year, $40 million deal with the Nets during the 2019 offseason and has averaged 7.9 points and 8.7 rebound per game over his near two years with the organization.

As he continues to age, the 32 year old remains a strong rebounder and shot blocker.
