Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, a restricted free agent, on Sunday afternoon signed a four-year, $42.7-million offer sheet with the Golden State Warriors, according to two people with knowledge of the situation who were not authorized to speak publicly about it.

The Clippers have said all along that they would match the Warriors' offer for the 6-11 Jordan, and that remains the plan, said a person familiar with the matter but not authorized to speak about it publicly. The Clippers have three days to match the offer or they will lose Jordan.

The Clippers got the the offer sheet from the Warriors later Sunday afternoon, said a person not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Jordan’s salary would start at about $10 million a year, with 4.5% raises.
