David Stern Statement On CP3 Trade

by Darnell Mayberry Published: December 9, 2011

The NBA has released a statement from commissioner David Stern regarding the vetoed trade of Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Since the NBA purchased the New Orleans Hornets, final responsibility for significant management decisions lies with the Commissioner’s Office in consultation with team chairman Jac Sperling.  All decisions are made on the basis of what is in the best interests of the Hornets.  In the case of the trade proposal that was made to the Hornets for Chris Paul, we decided, free from the influence of other NBA owners, that the team was better served with Chris in a Hornets uniform than by the outcome of the terms of that trade.”

I’ve got a sneaky suspicion that this paragraph isn’t the last we’ll hear about this fiasco.
