DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul reportedly did not get along last year, but the issues between them were not significant enough to make Jordan leave the Los Angeles Clippers. Now, Paul is doing his best to put rumors about the tension to rest.
“DeAndre, he’s like my big little brother. We talk a lot more than people realize,” Paul said, per Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk. “It doesn’t matter, the only thing that matters is we brought in Paul (Pierce), who I’m probably the happiest about because of his championship pedigree, being that voice in our locker room. We brought in Lance (Stephenson), Wes Johnson, brought Austin (Rivers) back, Josh Smith. Big summer for us.”
