There is NO rift between Chris Paul & DeAndre Jordan ... despite reports to the contrary, so says Clippers teammate Dahntay Jones who tells TMZ Sports the L.A. superstars are still like "brothers."
"Guys fight and argue on the court, but that's just the emotion of the game," Jones says ... "but people want to blow things out of proportion."
Jones is responding to an explosive report that Jordan could bolt Tinseltown this summer because he can't stand playing with CP3.
But Jones says he hasn't seen anything between the guys that make him think beef is on the menu.
"Those guys are brothers, man. They sit with each other on the plane, on the bus. If you don't like a guy you stay away from him."
As far as Jordan's relationship with rest of the team goes -- Jones says, "Everyone here wants DeAndre back. No other center can do what he does for us."
