The Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan is headed toward free agency, and he figures to be a major target for the Dallas Mavericks this offseason. Assuming they do make a push for Jordan whenever league rules allow them to make a push, Mark Cuban and co. will have help, apparently, from Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin.
The Hall of Fame receiver recently joined 103.3-FM ESPN Radio to discuss his recruiting efforts and told his hosts that Jordan, a Houston native, is a big fan of the Cowboys.
“DeAndre Jordan, he sent me his number a few weeks ago,” Irvin said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s a big Cowboys fan, a big Mike Irvin fan he said. I was going to reach out to him and get some tickets to the finals. I just knew they were going to be there, Michael Irvin sitting right here, DeAndre Jordan’s guest right now, ‘Hey! What’s up!’”
That wasn’t in the cards, of course. The Clippers’ season ended on Sunday with an ugly loss to the Houston Rockets. Now, Jordan has a decision to make, and Irvin wants to make sure he seriously considers lovely Dallas before making it.
“I feel I have a duty to make sure I let him know exactly how beautiful it is to land right here and call Dallas home,” Irvin said. “And that would be no doubt the truth for me. There’s no place better and I will certainly let him know that.”
