To quote Drake, the Los Angeles Clippers are somewhere between "they want it" and "they got it."

First reported by Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, DeAndre Jordan agreed to a four-year, $80 million deal with the Dallas Mavericks on July 3.

On Wednesday, hours before the NBA’s moratorium period ends and free agents can officially sign, ESPN’s Marc Stein broke news that things have changed and the big fella was pondering a return back to Los Angeles.

The Internet melted into a mob scene, and the madness escalated when Woj, Stein and ESPN's Ramona Shelburne tweeted these (rather alarming) updates:

Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn

So far, Clippers able to keep everyone else out of house, including Cuban, agents. Everyone. They're in four-corners until midnight Eastern.

Marc Stein @TheSteinLine

In story with @ramonashelburne we also report Mavs now fear they won't now get audience with Jordan as Clips have essentially surrounded him

Ramona Shelburne @ramonashelburne

Clippers believe DJ is returning to LA but I'm told they are staying at his house until he can sign at midnight.

These came after a supposed promise by Jordan to meet with Dallas before deciding:

Marc Stein @TheSteinLine

ESPN sources say that DeAndre Jordan has promised the Mavericks a face-to-tace meeting tonight before he makes a final decision

Let's dive into this sea of insanity head-first:

Heck, even Clippers forward Blake Griffin chimed in:

Don't agree with the furniture layout but I'm not an interior designer. http://t.co/23PNgQB88z

A presumably heartbroken Chandler Parsons did, too:

I thought I had a good pump fake.

Jordan will be eligible to put pen to the paper at 12 a.m. ET.

Here’s hoping this ends the only way it should—in a winner-takes-DJ brawl between the two teams.
