The Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers have discussed a trade involving L.A. center DeAndre Jordan but a formal offer was never made, according to NBA officials who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

The Clippers have been seeking a first-round draft pick, financial flexibility and young players in return for Jordan, according to the executives.

That would be somewhat similar to what they got when trading Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons for Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic as well as first- and second-round draft pick. The Clippers also sent the Pistons Willie Reed and Brice Johnson in the deal.

Any team that trades for Jordan will want to first know if he’s willing to pick up his player option for next season (which would pay him $24.1 million) and also sign an extension.
