Jordan is Melo five years into the future ...
Jordan was drafted 44th by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2010 NBA Draft. He was traded to the New York Knicks on July 8, 2010 for cash considerations. After playing in summer league with the Knicks, Jordan decided to play overseas to improve his game and signed with Serbian club KK Hemofarm for the 2010–11 season. New York retained his rights, which were purchased for a reported $500,000. In July 2011 he signed a contract with BC Krka in Slovenia. After the 2011 NBA lockout ended in December 2011, he joined the Knicks.
On January 17, 2012, the Knicks assigned Jordan to the Erie BayHawks of the NBA D-League. On January 23, 2012, the Knicks recalled Jordan from the BayHawks. He was re-assigned on March 2, 2012, recalled on March 8, 2012, and re-assigned once more on April 10, 2012. He played his first career playoff game against the Miami Heat in the 2012 NBA Playoffs.
On July 11, 2012, Jordan was traded to the Houston Rockets along with teammates Toney Douglas, Josh Harrellson and two future draft picks for Marcus Camby. He was waived by the Rockets on July 18, 2012.
On December 18, 2012, Jordan joined the Reno Bighorns of the D-League.
On February 4, 2013, Jordan was named to the Futures All-Star roster for the 2013 NBA D-League All-Star Game.
That's why his name rings a bell ... he does have some impressive stats as far as blocks and rebounds over his career and had some success in Europe.
