The Los Angeles Clippers reached out to the representatives of guard Eric Gordon and center DeAndre Jordan early Wednesday morning to discuss a contract extension for Gordon and a new contract for Jordan, who is a restricted free agent, general manager Neil Olshey told ESPNLosAngeles.com.
“The first phone calls from our organization today were in regard to our own players,” Olshey said. “We’re committed to the core group we have. We’ve been building slowly and we’re in a great position to capitalize on that now with our cap flexibility. But we know that our existing players are a priority.”
