Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has spoken out about DeAndre Jordan's decision to stay with the Los Angeles Clippers, and he is not amused. 

Cuban released a statement on the Cyber Dust messaging app on Thursday.

He didn't refer to Jordan by name, though Cuban was clearly referring to the centre when he said "he never responded to me at all yesterday. Not once."

Cuban also indicated he will eventually have more to say about what transpired on Wednesday, when a group of Clippers travelled to Jordan's home in Houston to make a last-ditch push to re-sign him that resulted in Jordan backing out of a verbal agreement with the Mavericks.

According to ESPN's Chris Broussard, Cuban also travelled to Houston but failed in a frantic attempt to find Jordan's home address. 

Cuban responded harshly to Broussard's claim and questioned his ethics in the process.

A war of words played out over Twitter, with Broussard standings by his sources.

Mavericks forward Chandler Parson, who sparked an emoji battle on Wednesday in an effort to hold Jordan to his word, was more candid than Cuban about his feeling towards Jordan's decision to return to Los Angeles. 

It's of little surprise that Parsons was angry, especially after referring to Jordan as the best centre in the NBA.
