DeAndre Jordan released a letter and supplement video on The Players Tribune talking about why he made the decision to go back “home” to the Clippers after agreeing to a deal with the Mavs.

Let’s just say that free agency wasn’t what I expected it to be. I thought it was going to be fun. I thought it was going to be like when I got recruited during college. But as it turns out, deciding what your future is going to be like is mostly a headache. For a second, the attention felt good, but after you think about everything and get out all the glitz and glamour from the process, you kind of start to think about what’s really best for you as a player and as a person — on and off the floor.

Ultimately, I made the right decision for me, and now I have to own that.

Last week, Paul Pierce also released a letter explaining “how it went down.” If you haven’t “read” it, then I suggest you check it out. Here’s a sample from that letter.
