​The Cleveland Cavaliers have been seeking DeAndre Jordan for quite some time now, but haven't been able to construct a trade package that would entice the Los Angeles Clippers.


Cleveland would most likely offer Tristan Thompson, Channing Frye and Iman Shumpert, but the Clippers would kindly decline that offer. The Clippers aren't in a hurry to blow up the roster, but they have flirted with Jordan trade discussions and want to make sure they're getting proper value.


If the Clippers are to trade Jordan to the Cavaliers, they would reportedly strongly consider a package that involves Thompson, Frye, and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick, according to Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com.

The Cavaliers are not interested in parting ways with Brooklyn's valuable first-round pick. However, the Cavs rank 28th in defensive efficiency and would probably need to improve in that aspect to be able to compete against defending champion Golden State Warriors.


The Cavaliers must entice LeBron James enough to keep him in Cleveland, and Jordan is one player that would make an immediate major impact on the team. 

The two sides might be at a standstill as of now, but they would probably entertain the idea of making a trade closer to the deadline.
