OAKLAND The Clippers matched the Warriors four-year, 43 million offer sheet on Monday for DeAndre Jordan, ensuring that the restricted free-agent center will remain in Los Angeles.The Warriors had hoped to acquire Jordan, a young and athletic center, and have him man the center position along with Andris Biedrins.The Warriors have now tried and failed two times when its come to finding more size for their roster. A week ago, Tyson Chandler spurned the Warriors 60-plus million offer for four years and instead signed with the New York Knicks.Warrirors owner Joe Lacob and general manager Larry Riley both expressed disappointment on Monday but still remained hopeful the team can bolster its frontcourt.We still feel like we can add a quality player up front, Riley said. Weve have plans in place in case this happened.It appears as though the Warriors will miss out on the four biggest names in the frontcourt free agent pool: Chandler, Jordan Marc Gasol and Nene. The Rockets signed Gasol to an offer sheet, but Memphis is expected to match for Gasol.As far as Nene is concerned, the Warriors have turned their attention elsewhere. Internally they dont believe hes the best fit of the four to play alongside starting power forward David Lee.One silver lining to the Clippers matching for Jordan so quickly they had three days but used less than one is that now rookies Klay Thompson and Jeremy Tyler can begin practicing with the team.Both those players had gone unsigned because the Warriors put all their financial resources into trying to sign Jordan.
Jarrett Jack is reportedly looking for a new team.
The Hawks waived the veteran point guard on Thursday, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Jack signed with Atlanta in July after he was released by the Nets in late June.
The soon-to-be 33-year old appeared in 79 games for the Warriors during the 2012-13 season, averaging 12.9 points and 5.6 assists over 29.7 minutes per contest.
He was even better in the 2013 playoffs, racking up 17.2 points and 4.7 assists in 12 games.
Jack made 32 appearances last year before he tore the ACL in his right knee in early January.
He was the 22nd overall pick in the 2005 draft.
The Warriors waived guards Cameron Jones, Phil Pressey and Elliot Williams, the team announced on Thursday.
Jones appeared in five preseason games, averaging 5.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 11.5 minutes.
Pressey also appeared in five games, averaging 2.4 points and 1.0 assist in 10.7 minutes.
Williams missed all six preseason games due to right knee surgery.
All three players were originally signed on Sept. 16, 2016.
The roster now stands at 15 players.
