LA Clippers DeAndre Jordan has been spotted on his European vacation in a very curious situation.

While in Holland, Jordan paid a visit to the most famous Dutch city, Amsterdam, the city with beautiful canals, beautiful women dancing in windows and some questionable coffee shops.

Jordan's visit however has made the headlines because he along with his fellow adventurers have been spotted in a local Dutch coffee shop.

A trip to a coffee shop isn't an unusual venture for most travellers but in Amsterdam, the coffee shops could be hazardous to the reputation of global sports stars.

Largely known for the legal sale of marijuana Dutch coffee shops are a common stop for most visitors to the Dutch capital.

Jordan and his comrades have been spotted in one of these shops and even worse, passing around a rolled cigarette.

It is unclear what is inside the cigarette, whether it be tobacco or marijuana but the photos show Jordan passing the cigarette around the group.

To his credit, the photos - published by TMZ do not show Jordan himself smoking the cigarette but only holding and passing it around.

As it turns out, Jordan is not the only Clippers star on the trip as he is joined by team-mates Matt Barnes and Glen Davis - Davis is also seen holding the cigarette so his participation in the recreational activity could also be speculated.

Who knows if the NBA stars did partake in drugs which are illegal in the US and whether or not it would come back to bite them when they return to home soil, either way it can be seen as another negative piece of publicity to hit the Clippers franchise this off-season.

All going wrong in LA

It has been a memorable off-season for the NBA as a whole - the big three have opted out in Miami, Carmelo Anthony has teams clambering over each other for his signature and the Dallas Mavericks have ensured Dirk Nowitzki will remain with the franchise for the foreseeable future.

The biggest headlines however, have come from Los Angeles where the Clippers have been caught up in a race row and eventual legal battles between Donald Sterling and the NBA, Donald Sterling and his family and well, pretty much Donald Sterling and everybody.

More bad press for the Clippers could be even more hazardous to their preparations for the upcoming NBA season and surely LA fans will just be hoping their team can get back to on the court matters sooner rather than later.
