Jordan is already working on improving his free throws, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Jordan has been working with assistant coach John Lucas on his form, and in a series of tweets, Lucas claimed Jordan made 1,000 free throws on Tuesday. It's unclear how many the big man attempted, but for a career 42 percent free-throw shooter, he has a lot more work to do. During the 2011-12 season, Jordan converted a career-high 53 percent of his free-throws, and that appears his best-case scenario this season.

Jordan has decided to sign with the Mavericks, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Jordan, who is reportedly seeking a larger offensive role, will leave the Clippers to team up with Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons in Dallas. The deal is reportedly worth around $80 million over four years. Jordan will step in as the unquestioned starting center for the Mavericks, and the Texas native figures to play major minutes. It remains to be seen whether he truly will have an increased offensive role, but he's yet to flash much range as a shooter, so it will certainly be interesting to see how he's used in Rick Carlisle's system.

Jordan will receive a max offer from the Clippers this summer, NBC Sports reports.

While it's no lock Jordan will stay in Los Angeles - he reportedly plans to explore his options - the Clippers can offer Jordan significantly more money than any other team. Doc Rivers confirmed that the Clips plan to offer the five-year max, which would pay Jordan roughly $109 million. Other teams could only offer Jordan four years and about $81 million. Opinions are split as to whether Jordan is truly a max-level player, but the All-NBA Third-Teamer proved once again this season that he's an elite rebounder and is among the league's top interior defenders. Jordan, a native Texan, will draw significant interest from several teams, and it will certainly be intriguing to see whether or not he'll spurn the Clippers' offer.
