John Reid of The Times-Picayune After the league kiboshed the deal, Paul tweeted “Wow.” Now Friday makes for an awkward moment. General Manager Dell Demps didn’t want Paul’s uncertain future to cast a cloud over the season as the Carmelo Anthony saga did last year in Denver. Ultimately, Anthony got his way and was traded to the New York Knicks. Training camp opens Friday, but Paul isn’t expected at the Alario Center in Westwego, according to league sources.
