听起来湖人队正期盼着小乔丹在这个月变成自由球员。

在湖人队腾出一个空余位置后的两周时间里,他们没有签下任何一名球员。

基于之前的报道,湖人队已经对买断市场上的“大牌球员们”表现出了很高的兴趣,例如维恩·艾灵顿,马基夫·莫里斯,以及埃文斯·坎特,但是他们最终都选择与其他球队签约。尽管如此,洛杉矶仍有希望在季后赛买断截止日前拿下另一位实力强劲的球员。

那么这个球员是谁呢?根据来自Eric Pincus的信息,那名球员就是德安德烈·乔丹。

很明显,德安德烈对球队会是一个更棒的选择,而且湖人已经把目光放在了这位来自纽约尼克斯队的中锋身上,如果他们能在季后赛买断截止日前拿下的话。

但是,Pincus也指出,如果尼克斯同意与小乔丹达成买断协议话,这背后还会有其他原因。

独行侠队通过送出小乔丹从而获得了波尔津吉斯。由于尼克斯的低迷表现,他们的注意力已经放在了乐透抽签上。所以他们为什么不与小乔丹完成买断从而让他加盟一支季后赛级别的球队呢。

在近期尼克斯与马修斯的买断中,后者前往了印第安纳步行者,但小乔丹依然留在纽约。

ESPN的记者Tim Bontemps曾发推称尼克斯留下小乔丹的原因是他和杜兰特的关系,“他和杜兰特是非常要好的朋友,要知道杜兰特也是尼克斯在休赛期想要招募到的自由球员。”

也许小乔丹是纽约未来计划的一份子,但也有消息称小乔丹想在这个夏天回到洛杉矶。该信息是由洛杉矶时报的Dan Woike提供的。小乔丹有兴趣重回洛杉矶,不管是快船还是湖人。

很明显,如果杜兰特考虑尼克斯的话,小乔丹可能会改变他的立场。但是在现在这个时间点,尼克斯更多地把目光放在了欧文和杜兰特身上。从另一方面来说,考虑到他们在自由球员市场上的表现,湖人队有足够的空间来提供一份可观的一年合同。小乔丹今年的薪水为一年2280万美金。

如果小乔丹已下定决心想早日回到那温暖的南加州,湖人队便可以拿下小乔丹从而更好地去冲击季后赛。

随着小乔丹的加盟,湖人队可以获得一名比现在球队里所有球员都要出色的篮板手。小乔丹场均可以摘下13.4个篮板,位列联盟第三。在本赛季的NBA中,只有德拉蒙德和戴维斯能摘下比小乔丹更多的篮板。湖人队本赛季的队内篮板球榜首为勒布朗·詹姆斯,场均可以拿到8.6个篮板。

在防守端,小乔丹也许不会像过去那样那么坚固可靠,但是相对于贾维尔·麦基来说,这仍是一个很棒的升级。据ESPN的数据显示,小乔丹在中锋位置上的真实防守正负值榜上位列第六,而麦基则排在了第44位。

在进攻端,小乔丹对于詹姆斯来说也是一个很好的潜在搭配,就像开赛初期的贾维尔·麦基一样,不过他比麦基更有效率。在赛季出场次数达50次以上的球员中,小乔丹的命中率位列第二(64.9%),仅次于爵士队的鲁迪·戈贝尔(65.4%)。

德安德烈乔丹

再强调一遍,小乔丹并不完美,但是他非常有价值。

所以我们得希望尼克斯在3月1日之前开启全力摆烂模式,然后与乔丹一刀两断。把小乔丹留在麦迪逊花园广场是一件不错的事情,但是你知道什么比这更酷吗?蔡恩·威廉森。

别犹豫了尼克斯。#放小乔丹走吧

Lakers reportedly ‘eyeing’ DeAndre Jordan for final roster spot
Christian Rivas
It sounds like the Lakers are hoping that DeAndre Jordan becomes available this month.
It’s been exactly two weeks since the Los Angeles Lakers opened up a spot on their roster, and they still haven’t signed anyone.
The Lakers reportedly expressed interest in all of the high-profile names on the buyout market like Wayne Ellington, Markieff Morris and Enes Kanter, but all of them opted to sign with different teams. Despite this, Los Angeles is hopeful they can still snag a big name free agent before the playoff-eligibility waiver deadline on March 1.
One name they’re keeping an eye on? DeAndre Jordan, according to Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report:
A better fit would be New York Knicks center DeAndre Jordan, who the Lakers are eyeing before the March 1 playoff-eligibility waiver deadline.
However, as Pincus notes, there’s reason to be skeptical that the Knicks would agree to a buyout with Jordan:
The Dallas Mavericks sent Jordan to New York in the Kristaps Porzingis trade. With the 11-47 Knicks focused on (or tanking for) the draft lottery, why wouldn’t they let him out of his contract to join a contender?
The Knicks recently bought out guard Wesley Matthews, who then signed with the Indiana Pacers, but Jordan remains in New York.
ESPN.com’s Tim Bontemps tweeted one theory on why the Knicks may hold on to Jordan: “He’s also good friends with Kevin Durant—whom the Knicks are hoping to land as a free agent this summer.”
But while Jordan might be in New York’s plans, he reportedly has his eyes set on a return to Los Angeles this summer. According to Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times, Jordan is interested in coming to back to the west coast, either with the Clippers or Lakers.
Obviously he might reconsider his stance if Durant commits to signing with the Knicks this summer, but at that point, New York might shift their attention to bigger fish to pair with Durant,like Kyrie Irving. The Lakers, on the other hand, will have the cap space to offer Jordan a sizable one-year contract, depending on how their own free agency plans pan out. Jordan currently makes $22.8 million annually.
If Jordan is really dead set on moving back to sunny Southern California sooner rather than later, the Lakers could use his services for their late-season playoff push.
In adding Jordan, the Lakers would get a tenacious rebounder unlike anyone on their roster. Jordan is ranked third in the league in rebounds per game with 13.4. Only Anthony Davis and Andre Drummond are grabbing more this season. James leads the Lakers in rebounds per game with 8.6.
Defensively, Jordan might not be the stalwart he used to be, but he’s still an upgrade over JaVale McGee. According to ESPN, Jordan is ranked sixth among centers in Defensive Real Plus-Minus. McGee is ranked 44th.
Offensively, Jordan has the potential to feast alongside LeBron James the same way McGee did earlier this season, but at an even more efficient rate. Jordan is ranked second among players that have appeared in more than 50 games this season in field goal percentage (64.9 percent), only trailing Rudy Gobert (65.4 percent).
Jordan is also the all-time leader in field goal percentage, ahead of current Laker Tyson Chandlerand former Lakers Dwight Howard and Shaquille O’Neal.
Again, Jordan isn’t perfect, but he’s still extremely valuable.
Let’s hope that the Knicks go into full-on tank mode before March 1 and set Jordan free. Having Jordan in Madison Square Garden is cool, but you know what would be even cooler? Zion Williamson.
Don’t overthink this, Knicks. #FreeDJ.
