Clippers, Wizards Had Butler For Ariza Trade Agreed Upon
Feb 25, 2013 12:46 PM EST
The Los Angeles Clippers and Washington Wizards had an agreement in principle on the eve of the deadline involving a trade of Caron Butler for Trevor Ariza, according to sources.
Donald Sterling rejected the trade a few hours before the deadline in fear of ruining the team's chemistry.
Butler continues to have a home in the Washington D.C. area, while Ariza would have given the Clippers a wing defender with length.

Man, is Sterling just trolling ex-Lakers or what??? This would have been pretty upsetting if it had gone down though.
