DALLAS (AP) _ DeAndre Jordan has apologized to the Dallas Mavericks and owner Mark Cuban after backing out of a verbal agreement with them to remain with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Jordan wrote Friday on Twitter that he was humbled by the Mavericks’ and Cuban’s “kindness and understanding.” He called Cuban “one of the best owners in the world.”

The center had agreed to a deal with the Mavericks last week before changing his mind Wednesday, the day before contracts could be signed.

Cuban detailed some of the events leading up to that earlier Friday on Cyber Dust, saying he had traveled to Jordan’s house in Houston once communication with the then-free agent had stopped and he started to hear Jordan might be having second thoughts.
