Chandler Parsons has one final dig at DeAndre Jordan after Mavericks win

Four months on from DeAndre Jordan's spectacular free agency U-turn, the Dallas Mavericks got a little bit of revenge last night when they handed Jordan and the Clippers a 118-108 loss.

As you might expect, it was a tough night personally for the All-Star center as he was booed throughout the game by the American Airlines Center crowd.

Hot take

It was Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons, though, who had the hottest of hot takes when speaking about the Jordan saga after the game.

"He's not a priority to us," Parsons said, via ESPN. "And by the looks of their team, he's not to them, either."

If we could add fire emojis here, believe me, we would.

Parsons was one of the lead recruiters as Dallas looked to entice Jordan to join the franchise over the summer, and, after seeing the center duck out of the move at the last second back in July, he clearly couldn't resist one last dig.


Parsons might have a point, too. Part of the reason Jordan was considering leaving Los Angeles was because he wasn't the focal point of the team. 

And, although the Clippers managed to convince him he would have a more dominant role this season, it hasn't quite panned out that way so far in 2015-16.

The 27-year-old remains below Chris Paul and Blake Griffin in the pecking order and looks set to continue in the complimentary role as things stand.

Of course, this early in the season it is impossible to say whether Jordan was right, from a basketball perspective, to pull out of the Mavericks deal.

After last night's poor result, he is probably just hoping the whole drama has finally been put to bed.
