Jonathan Feigen: Wallace: “We were very clear about who was in the trade. Contrary to reports, it was not Dillon Brooks. Individuals from one or both of those teams leaked the deal. We were very clear on what we communicated. We don’t have any issues with how we conducted this.”

Former Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni, working as an advisor to first-year Pelicans coach Willie Green, attended Sunday’s game at Toyota Center, the first game he had attended this season. Living in Austin, D’Antoni said he watches all Pelicans games to be available as a consultant and does plan to attend more games throughout the season. But as much as he has enjoyed his current role and last season’s as an assistant for Steve Nash with the Nets in his first season, he said he would not rule out a return to coaching.
