Jordan has already informed Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle that he is joining Dallas, sources said.

Jordan, who turns 27 on July 21, has spent all seven seasons of his NBA career with the Los Angeles Clippers, developing into one of the league's best rim protectors and defensive centers.

He averaged 11.5 points and led the league in rebounding at 15 per game last season, earning first-team NBA All-Defense honors.

Jordan was drafted by the Clippers in 2008 out of Texas A&M in the second round with the 35th overall selection.

The Mavericks can't officially sign Jordan until July 9 when the NBA's free-agent moratorium ends.
