Free Agency Chaos 2011 NBA News Thread



Tomorrow is going to be chaos with news all over the place on the player movement front, so I thought rather than commenting on NBA news under Brew Hoop articles, we should start a general NBA post. Any thoughts on the weekends non Buck news can be discussed here. Some additional news on the Lakers CP3 mess after the jump.

Some tweets by Adrian Wojnarowski regarding Sterns nix of the CP3 trade:

The owners half-pushed this through, and Stern took it the rest of the way," a league source involved in nixed trade told Y! Sports.

"In the end, David didn’t like that the players were dictating where they wanted to go," source says.

League source on killed deal: "...(Stern) wasn't going to let Chris Paul dictate where he wanted to go."

Christopher Broussard is reporting that the Lakers killed the deal because Gasol refused to go to Houston.

This is a mess that might take the NBA a while to clean up. The NBA put themselves in this bind when they purchased the Hornets in the first place. Phil Jackson sniffed this debacle out last year when he first learned that Shinn was selling to the league.
