The Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers held advanced trade discussions on DeAndre Jordan on deadline day. The two sides were unable to come to an agreement and the Cavaliers pivoted to a pair of deals involving the Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz. "There were people in the league who thought there was traction towards the Cavs making a deal with the Clippers yesterday morning," said Brian Windhorst on The Lowe Post. "The reason people thought that was because there were other teams who were engaged in trade talks with pieces that would have spun off from that trade. "So it got to the point where the Cavs and Clippers felt like they were close enough to some sort of agreement with each other that they could begin looking to bring in third teams and that's why I know about it.
