Three teams pulled off a trade that would have altered the NBA landscape, only to have the deal squashed by commissioner David Stern. Chris Paul won’t be going to the Lakers, because David Stern said, “NO!”
The New Orleans Hornets finally reached a deal to get back some assets for Chris Paul, who they clearly believed was going to leave via free agency next summer. They traded Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers in a three-way deal that netted them Goran Dragic, Kevin Martin, Lamar Odom, Luis Scola and the Knicks’ 2012 first-round draft pick (via Houston). Then, NBA owners pushed commissioner David Stern to kill the deal.
