Amin Elhassan says Rajon Rondo destroyed his value during his stint in Dallas: "There was only one team that seemed to be interested in his services. It would be the team that is leading the league in dysfunction."
DeAndre Jordan - who agreed to a deal with the Mavericks today - threw down an NBA-best 401 alley-oops over the last four seasons, the last one coming in the Clippers' Game 7 loss to the Rockets in May.

Sources: Tobias Harris agrees to 4-year, $64 million deal to return to Orlando Magic
Kevin Arnovitz writes of the Clippers' attempts to re-sign DeAndre Jordan: "The Clippers' meeting didn't include a single player. [Blake] Griffin, of course, was in constant touch with his confidant, but [Chris] Paul was off in the Bahamas with LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Paul made only half-hearted attempts to reach out to Jordan late in the process, according to sources close to the situation." Bigger role in Dallas
Sources: Derrick Williams agrees to 2-year, $10 million deal with Knicks. Player option for second year

I want to be the Sacramento Kings beat writer for this season so badly. DeMarcus, Rondo and George Karl. This needs to be a Reality Show!!!
