Clippers Surround DeAndre Jordan Until Midnight Deadline
The L.A. Clippers, who were thought to have lost center DeAndre Jordan to the Mavericks last week, have dug in deep, and are now camped out at his house, hoping to keep others at bay for the midnight NBA free agency deadline.
Clippers believe DJ is returning to LA but I'm told they are staying at his house until he can sign at midnight.

Of course, Adrian Wojnarowski got in on the news, too (he’s like the NBA’s version of instant messaging).
So far, Clippers able to keep everyone else out of house, including Cuban, agents. Everyone. They're in four-corners until midnight Eastern.

And all of this comes after an emoji battle began between the Mavericks and Clippers this afternoon, as both teams worked their tweets in hopes of luring Jordan to sign with them. The Clippers were coming to Houston to sway Jordan to come back to L.A.
It all started when Mavs forward Chandler Parsons tweeted out an airplane.

Then Clippers guard J.J. Redick chimed in with a car, because he lives in Austin, Texas.

Which prompted Blake Griffin to get in on the action --

We’ll see if the Clippers are able to hold off any suitors.
