Mandatory Credit: Richard Mackson-USA TODAY SportsIt’s become clear that DeAndre Jordan is on the trading block as the Los Angeles Clippers try to become a championship caliber team.

However, it doesn’t seem to be affecting the big man.

He talked about being in limbo, saying:

“Either way I’d be doing the thing that I love and that’s playing basketball. I’m a Clipper right now and I’m a Clipper until someone tells me otherwise, and I’m going to try to make the best of my opportunities in my professional career. I love it and I’m going to keep taking it a day at a time.”

That’s a great answer for a guy who will likely have to win over a new fan base, but it’s not a good sign for a guy who wants to stay a Clipper.

Jordan averaged 8.8 points and 7.2 rebounds last season, and was a lackluster 38 percent at free throw attempts. Knowing that, he’s owed roughly $33 million over the next three seasons.

It might be hard getting a team to take that contract, especially since he hasn’t seemed to spend much of the off-season working on his shots from the charity stripe.

It’s good that Jordan's not taking the trade talks personal though, because in the end it all comes down to business.
