Woj: Sixers’ Will be ‘Aggressive in Pursuit’ of DeAndre Jordan
As the Sixers look to put the final pieces of their playoff roster together, they are still looking to add a big man behind Joel Embiid.
One name they are expected to pursue is veteran center DeAndre Jordan, who is expected to be waived by the Los Angles Lakers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Jordan was once a feared rebounder, who excelled while playing for Doc Rivers' 'Lob City' team with the Clippers. The 14-year vet has appeared in 32 games this season, making 19 starts with the Lakers and is averaging just 4.1 points and 5.4 rebounds in 12.8 minutes per game this season.
He was once a very good pick and roll player, who could fit in nicely with James Harden in the backup center minutes. The 33-year old averaged 14.1 boards from 2013-14 - 2018-19.
For his career, Jordan averages 9.2 points and 10.4 rebounds.
The team added veteran Paul Millsap in the Harden deal and signed veteran Willie Cauley-Stein to a 10-day contract, but adding Jordan might be a better option behind Embiid.
