Mark Cuban finally gets his big free agent in DeAndre Jordan

DeAndre Jordan has chosen the Dallas Mavericks, according to reports Friday afternoon. Now what?

His departure from the Los Angeles Clippers (Note: Players can't sign contracts until July 9, after the league reviews the revenue from the previous season and officially sets the salary cap) could set in motion a series of events with major ramifications around the league.

This is the marquee acquisition Mark Cuban & Co. have been waiting for since breaking up the Mavericks team that won the 2011 championship.

Make no mistake: Jordan is a good value at the maximum salary. My free agent rankings projected him as the second most valuable player available over the next three seasons.

Jordan trails only LeBron James, with a value of more than $100 million over the next three seasons.
