Jared Ahern Jordan (born October 14, 1984) is an American professional basketball player.
Jordan, who graduated from Kingswood-Oxford School in West Hartford, Connecticut in 2003, became the point guard for the Marist College basketball team until his graduation in 2007. Wearing #25, and nicknamed "The Magician", he led the nation for two years in a row in assists, the only NCAA Division I player to do so since Avery Johnson, the former head coach of the New Jersey Nets. Jordan averaged 8.5 assists, 16.1 points, and 4.8 rebounds per game as a junior at Marist, and 8.7 assists, 17.2 points, and 5.9 rebounds per game as a senior.
On June 28, 2007, Jordan was selected 45th in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Clippers, then played in the 2007 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, in which he averaged 4.2 points and 4.8 assists in five games (all starts).
In July 2008, the Phoenix Suns announced that Jordan would play in the team's 2008 NBA Summer League games. Coming off the bench in five games, he averaged 3.2 points, 2.6 assists and 14.6 minutes.
On September 27, 2008, the New Orleans Hornets signed Jordan to a non-guaranteed training camp contract. The guard played in two games and averaged 3.0 points and 3.0 assists in preseason play. On October 22, the team cut him from its roster.
On December 17, 2008, Jordan signed on with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, an NBA Development League team based in Hidalgo, Texas. He played his first game in a Vipers uniform the following day, notching two assists in an 89-80 victory over the Tulsa 66ers. Over the season, he led the league in assists per 48 minutes (13.7) and ranked second in assists per game (8.8) and assists per turnover (3.29). He set the Vipers' record for assists in a game (21 in a 122-116 victory over Fort Wayne on Feb. 26).
In July 2011, Jordan returned to Telekom Baskets Bonn under a two-season contract.
