Hornets Chair Says Current Place In Standings Not Affecting Sale Of Team

MANAGEMENT TRAINING: In Dallas, Brad Townsend noted Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban “continues to maintain” that G Chris Paul’s trade from the NBA-owned Hornets to the Clippers “was an equally poor decision, if not worse, than the trade that got vetoed” for Paul to go to the Lakers. Cuban: "I don't think it was about the Lakers, per se. I think it was about the way they did the deal, which was ridiculous. I don't think it was about which team. It was the fact that we just went through this whole CBA and said that the incumbent team has the advantage -- and then the team the league owns (chickened) out. Look how it's worked out for them.” He added, "Bad management gets you bad results" (DALLASNEWS.com, 2/13).
