Brooklyn Nets are still looking for suitors to offload DeAndre Jordan’s massive contract. According to Brian Lewis of the NY Post, ‘the Nets could still give up an asset to trade Jordan’.

Jordan has two years and $20 million left on his deal. Brooklyn would like to either move him or work on a buyout to receive some cap relief.

“The Nets could still give up an asset to trade Jordan, negotiate a buyout, or go into next season with him and give him a chance to fight for a spot in the rotation. With camp not starting until the end of September, the Nets are in no rush,” Lewis wrote.

The veteran big appeared in 57 games with the Nets this past season. He averaged 7.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in 21. 9 minutes per contest.

Brooklyn has already traded Landry Shamet and Spencer Dinwiddie receiving back draft compensation and some cap space relief. However, they did not package assets to offload Jordan’s contract.
