Update, Sept 9: Jordan signs with Lakers after buyout, trade

The Brooklyn Nets have traded DeAndre Jordan, four second-round picks and cash considerations to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Jahlil Okafor and Sekou Doumbouya, the team announced.

The Pistons are reportedly planning a buyout on Jordan’s contract, allowing him to become a free agent.

Jordan signed a four-year deal during the summer of 2019, averaging around 8 points and 9 rebounds during his two campaigns in Brooklyn.

With a buyout expected, the Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly set to sign Jordan, according to multiple reports.

It’s been a busy start to September in Brooklyn, which agreed to sign veterans Paul Millsap and LaMarcus Aldridge, the latter coming out of retirement.

The Nets also waived forward Alize Johnson on Friday.
