If you were on Twitter Wednesday night, chances are you were reeled in to the drama involving DeAndre Jordan and the battle between the Clippers and Mavericks to sign the NBA free agent. Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Clippers had shacked up with Jordan and locked the Mavs out of any chance to negotiate with him.

Meanwhile, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was reportedly trying to get Jordan’s address so he could talk to the free agent center personally, but was frustrated in those attempts. ESPN’s Chris Broussard reported that Cuban was driving around Dallas (later corrected to Houston), madly texting the player’s family for that information.

That compelled Cuban’s brother to call BS on the NBA insider:

It seems possible that one of Jordan’s family members that Cuban was texting relayed that information to Broussard. After all, he and many other NBA reporters were surely working every source they had close to the situation to determine what was going on with Jordan, the Clippers and the Mavericks.

But presumably knowing his brother better than anyone, perhaps Brian Cuban thought the scenario that Broussard portrayed was so ludicrous that it wasn’t believable. And if the tweet went unchallenged, that would be the impression people had of the situation and Mark Cuban’s behavior during a bizarre negotiation process.

If it turns out that Broussard was correct (which we may likely never know), at the very least, we got an entertaining tweet in response.
