The Pistons plan to work on a buyout with Jordan on the remaining two years and $20 million left on his deal, per Wojnarowski, and Jordan intends to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers if he clears waivers.
The Nets will save $47 million in salary and tax in the deal.
Jordan spent the last two seasons in Brooklyn averaging 7.9 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.
He was envisioned to be the Nets’ main big man down low after trading away Jarrett Allen, but the former All-Star played only 57 of 72 games last season and fell out of the playoff rotation.
This will be Okafor’s second stint in Brooklyn after playing with the Nets back in the 2017-2018 season.
The former No. 3 overall pick averaged 5.4 points and 2.4 rebounds in 12.9 minutes per game over 27 appearances for the Pistons last season.
Doumbouya is entering his third season in the league and has career averages of 5.6 points and 2.8 rebounds over 17.3 minutes of play per game.
Nets to waive Alize Johnson
After reporting the Jordan trade, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski also reported that the Nets plan to waive F Alize Johnson.
Johnson played 18 games for the Nets last season, averaging 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per contest.
