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.

Nor can the Lakers get blamed for always making the right decisions over decades. At some point its not just luck or "gamble", its superior management and superior ownership.
