According to a report from Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, it wasn’t Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Steve Ballmer or even Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers who convinced DeAndre Jordan to stay in L.A.

It was Rivers’ daughter, Callie:

A source said he believes Doc Rivers' daughter, Callie, got to DeAndre Jordan and convinced him 2 change his mind and return 2 the Clippers.

All systems were go with the #Mavs as late as last Monday night in regards to DeAndre coming to Dallas. Then all you know what broke loose.

Dwain Price @DwainPrice

When you have an impressionable mind and are easily influenced, yeah, folks you to baby-sit you. It is what it is. #DeAndre

Hm, interesting. Price’s report stops short of telling us exactly how Callie Rivers convinced Jordan to stay put with the Clippers.

But regardless, it's hard to imagine playing for a contender and earning more money in Los Angeles didn't have a little something to do with it.
