CP3 little help in keeping Jordan

Kevin Arnovitz writes of the Clippers' attempts to re-sign DeAndre Jordan: "The Clippers' meeting didn't include a single player.

Paul made only half-hearted attempts to reach out to Jordan late in the process, according to sources close to the situation." Bigger role in Dallas
