Clippers Coach Doc Rivers' son Spencer, who plays basketball at UC Irvine, was clearly not pleased by Jordan's decision and took to Twitter to vent.
Spencer Rivers tweeted: "If true I don't see why someone signs with a team that might not make playoffs and have 0% chance of winning a championship...
"Hope he does well and of course I'm mad he left lol am I supposed to be happy..."
This past season Jordan averaged career highs in points (11.5), field-goal percentage (71%) and rebounds (15.0). He also had four 20-20 performances -- games with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds.
Jordan had spent his entire seven-season pro career with the Clippers, watching them progress from NBA laughingstock to a team on the brink of reaching the Western Conference finals this season for the first time in its 45-year existence.
After free agency began Tuesday night, Jordan met with the Mavericks, Clippers, Lakers and New York Knicks. He apparently was impressed that he'd have a bigger role in the Mavericks' offense and that Dirk Nowitzki had come off family vacation for a meeting in L.A. with Jordan.
The 26-year-old center's decision to leave was definitely a blow to the Clippers, who have been trying to brand themselves as a destination team.
Two of Rivers' other kids weighed in on Jordan's decision to leave.
Tweeted his son Jeremiah: "Disappointed As I May Be. Can't even be Mad, DJ Gave His All To The Clippers, Good Luck In Dallas Man."
Tweeted Rivers' daughter Callie: "Doesn't make sense, had a championship team. but ALWAYS wish him the very very best."
