Here we go again.
DeAndre Jordan has been on the trading block for what seems like forever now. The 6-foot-11 big man, currently in his 9th season in the NBA, is garnering serious interest from teams all over the league.
The Clippers have struggled this year with the departure of Chris Paul combined with a slew of injuries. Their poor start might finally signal the moment in which they need to start trading away some of their pieces, and it's looking like Jordan could be the first to go.
Gary Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times has identified the 4 teams most interested in the acquisition of the Clippers big man.

The Raptors, Wizards, Timberwolves and Bucks are all teams looking to win now, and the 10 points, 13.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks a game that Jordan supplies would slide in nicely with any them.
Woelfel added in his article that the Milwaukee Bucks are the most interested out of the group after they boosted their guard play last month with the acquisition of Eric Bledsoe from Phoenix.
The Clippers are not going to part with Jordan easily, though, and initial reports out of the teams camp suggests their asking price is hefty.
According to reports, the Clippers are asking for Kris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon and John Henson in exchange for Jordan. The team is saying that they would absolutely need two, if not all three of those players to get the deal done.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have also been linked with Jordan, but it looks as if their interest has fallen off a little bit compared to the four listed above. A trade including Tristan Thompson has been talked about, but discussions have slowed.
The Raptors, Wizards, Timberwolves and Bucks could all get to the next level with the addition of DeAndre Jordan to their roster. The trade deadline isn't until February 8th, though, and only time will tell if Jordan actually leaves L.A this time.
