Free agent center DeAndre Jordan is moving from one New York borough to another as he’ll join the Brooklyn Nets.
It’s a big day for the Brooklyn Nets organization as they sign three former All-Stars and change the balance of power in the Eastern Conference with the additions of Jordan, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant.
Jordan spent last season with the Dallas Mavericks and the New York Knicks in a combined 69 games. He averaged 11 points, 13.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.
Over his 11-year career, Jordan hasn’t been a dominant offensive player, but even approaching 31 years old, he’s still one of the best rebounders in the NBA. The 6-foot-11 big man averages 10.9 rebounds per game over his career and at least 13 rebounds per game in each of the last six seasons.
Brooklyn now has Jordan along with Jarrett Allen who has shown some promise during his first two seasons at the center position and should cause a nightmare for opponents down in the paint.
