Los Angeles Clippers Rumors
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.”
Marreese Speights said he spent his first two months with the Clippers trying to convey to his new teammates how to keep pushing once they had a team on the ropes, which he’d learned with the Warriors. How to share the ball, like Golden State is famous for.
