New Orleans would have received Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Lamar Odom, Goran Dragic and a 2012 first-round pick, but speculations began circulating that the league’s highest executive barred it from happening. Marking the fifth anniversary of the controversial would-be deal, Stern was asked to characterize his actions while guesting at the Sports Radio Road Show. “I’m going to correct your language,” Stern said, dismissing the idea, according to a Sports Illustrated report. “What cancellation? The (Hornets) GM was not authorized to make that trade. And acting on behalf of our owners, we decided not to make it. I was an owner rep. There was nothing to void.”
Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant will face the Los Angeles Clippers this evening for the first time since having a chance to join them via free agency last offseason. He said their recruitment of him was tough to turn down. “Blake [Griffin], DJ [DeAndre Jordan] and CP [Chris Paul]. That’s what made it interesting,” Durant said after Wednesday’s morning shootaround. “Those three guys are tremendous, and unbelievable talents. They made it tough on me.”
