D-Fenders Trade for Jerome Jordan
The D-Fenders made a trade Monday to acquire center Jerome Jordan, sending Ronald Dupree and Orien Greene to the Reno Bighorns.
Jordan has legitimate NBA size, 7 feet and 253 pounds. Drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2010 (44th overall), Jordan found his way to the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets, playing 21 games.
Operating as the D-League affiliate for the Lakers, the D-Fenders are run by General Manager Glenn Carraro, also the assistant general manager of the Lakers.
The Lakers have denied having a contract in place with Jordan, but the move by the D-Fenders suggests the team might have at least a cursory interest in the 26-year-old Jamaican center.
