Los Angeles Clippers
Long story short: So a couple days ago Clippers free agent center DeAndre Jordan said he was going to sign a contract with the Mavericks.
Then today the Clippers decided they really wanted him back. So Doc Rivers and a few of the Clippers players came over to DeAndre's house...and are staying with him until midnight tonight when the free agency deadline ends (or something, don't know).
Which is basically a hostage situation to prevent Mark Cuban/the Mavs from stopping by. Or a friendly slumber party with your old (and future?) teammates. Weird. The NBA is really weird.
Also this tweet is pretty funny:

Clippy says "Go Clippers!"
All for just $2 Billion. $2 Billion???
Ken Berger reports that the clippers and celtics have reached an agreement to release Doc out of his contract and to sign with the Clippers for a 3 year, 21 million dollar deal. The celtics would recieve a 2015 1st round pick. However for now it seems as if Kevin Garnett is to remain a celtic....for now
