NBA Says NO To Paul Trade

THE NBA'S DECISION TO REJECT A PROPOSED TRADE INVOLVING ALL-STAR GUARD CHRIS PAUL SET THE STAGE FOR AN AWKWARD OPENING TO TRAINING CAMPS ON FRIDAY IN NEW ORLEANS, LOS ANGELES AND HOUSTON. THE NBA-OWNED HORNETS THOUGHT THEY HAD WORKED OUT A THREE-TEAM DEAL TO SEND PAUL TO LOS ANGELES IN A DEAL THAT ALSO WOULD HAVE SENT LAMAR ODOM TO NEW ORLEANS AND FOUR-TIME ALL-STAR PAU GASOL TO HOUSTON. THE LEAGUE, HOWEVER, DECLINED TO APPROVE THE TRADE, MEANING PAUL WAS EXPECTED TO REPORT TO HORNETS CAMP, WHILE ODOM AND GASOL WERE EXPECTED TO SHOW UP WHEN THE LAKERS OPENED PRACTICE UNDER NEW HEAD COACH MIKE BROWN.
AFTER DEAL FELL THROUGH, PAUL SIMPLY WROTE, "WOW," ON HIS TWITTER PAGE.
ODOM, TOO, TOOK TO TWITTER TO SHARE HIS FEELINGS: "WHEN A TEAM TRADES U AND IT DOESN'T GO DOWN? NOW WHAT?" THE FALLOUT FROM THE TRADE THAT NEVER WAS CAUSED THE NBA TO DENY REPORTS THAT DEAL WAS NIXED BECAUSE A NUMBER OF TEAM OWNERS COMPLAINED ABOUT IT TO NBA COMMISSIONER DAVID STERN.
