The Dallas Mavericks are one of four teams who will meet with DeAndre Jordan when free agency begins on July 1, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Clippers, Lakers and Bucks will also meet with the 26-year-old center at his Houston home. Chandler Parsons has been hanging out with Jordan in Houston in a recruiting effort, the Los Angeles Times also reports.

★ Every Mavericks rumor all in one place.

Los Angeles -- the one with sailing ships -- can still offer Jordan the most money and likely plan to. Because of their cap situation, the Clippers have very little flexibility beyond re-signing their own free agents. In fact, they've made the most of their assets by gambling on a small trade this past week: bringing in Lance Stephenson in exchange for Spencer Hawes and Matt Barnes.

There was reportedly a falling out between Jordan and Chris Paul, something that could factor into Jordan's decision. However, given the money, the Clippers still have to be the favorites to re-sign Jordan.

NBA free agency begins at 11:01 p.m. Central Time on June 30. The Mavericks are also pursuing max free agent LaMarcus Aldridge, who reportedly told the Blazers he would not return next season.
