DeAndre Jordan‘s time as a Brooklyn Net is done. 

Lamarcus Aldridge’s is starting over.

Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets are dealing Jordan, cash and four second-round picks to the Detroit Pistons in a salary dump that will send a package including Jahlil Okafor to Brooklyn.

They’re apparently using their newfound financial flexibility to bring Aldridge back on a one-year, $2.6 million deal, per Wojnarowski. Aldridge played five games with the Nets last season before retiring with a heart condition. The seven-time All-Star forward was recently medically cleared to return to basketball and will do so with Brooklyn.

Per the report, the Pistons and Jordan are expected to negotiate a buyout, leaving the veteran center as a free agent with the Los Angeles Lakers as likely suitors. 

The Nets signed Jordan to a four-year $40 million deal in 2019 as they rebuilt around Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Durant is a friend of Jordan’s. He and Irving reportedly took discounts to allow the Nets salary cap room to pay Jordan $10 million annually.

Jordan, 33, averaged 7.9 points, 8.7 rebounds and one block in 21.9 minutes per game in his two seasons in Brooklyn.
