Center DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers have had several conversations about a contract extension, but they’re not close to a deal.

In fact, Jordan and the Clippers haven’t even talked contract figures.

Both sides said they will continue to stay engaged in hopes of making Jordan a Clipper for the rest of his career.

“We’ve had discussions, but obviously nothing has gotten done,” Jordan said. “So, we’ll see what happens.”

Jordan, 29, who will earn $22.6 million this season, has a player option for the 2018-19 season that will pay him $24.1 million.

If he were to opt out of his contract next summer and re-sign with the Clippers, Jordan could sign a deal for five years that could be worth in excess of $207 million. That deal would earn him 8% raises with the Clippers because he will have been in the NBA for 10 seasons.

If Jordan were to opt out of his contract next summer and sign with another team, he could sign a deal for four years that would earn him about $175 million. His raises would be 5% for a player with 10-plus years of service.
