Los Angeles Clippers' DeAndre Jordan drawing interest from Toronto Raptors

The Cleveland Cavaliers seem to be in panic mode after they were blown out of the water yet again by James Harden's Houston Rockets on Saturday night.

The Los Angeles Clippers traded Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons last week in a stunning blockbuster, and various rumors suggest L.A. also could deal away DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams before Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Decreases in the production of Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson have led to their contracts earning the distinction of being undesirable.

Had the Clippers agreed to the trade it would've helped the Cavaliers with many issues as Amick stated.

If the Clippers' trades of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul serve as any indicator, a pairing of undesirable contracts and a late first-round pick should not be enough for the Cavs to land a player of Jordan's caliber. The Clippers said no. One of their top priorities is clearing space to give themselves the opportunity to pursue high-level free agents in the upcoming off-seasons.

The trade deadline is just two days away and the Cavs are running out of time to get a deal done that helps them in the present without sacrificing their future.

Kanter previously had 18 stitches in his lip to close a cut, however, it reopened, so he underwent a procedure Wednesday. This summer, Porzingis will be eligible for a five-year, $157 million extension, with a starting salary of $27 million.

It will be tough for the Clippers to shed Jordan's salary without taking poor contracts back.

Before they make an offer, the Blazers will probably want to know if Jordan is willing to extend his stay in Portland beyond the current season.

The Cavaliers have been one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association since Christmas and are on a downward spiral the likes of which have never been seen on a LeBron James-led team.

U.S. reviews nuclear arsenal in wake of Nokor threats

The last few days before the February 8 trade deadline will tell how much of a risk Cavs general manager Koby Altman is (or isn't) willing to take.
