Really believe that the league (owners of the N.O. Hornets) felt the team was worth more $$$ with Chris Paul than with the assets acquired in the attempted trade. Really believe that is the root cause for the trade Veto and that is the right of the "owner" to over-rule the GM. They would rather try o Sell the franchise with Paul as the centerpiece than with Scola, Martin, Odom, et al. No way the league steps in if it were a team other than the team they owned (New Orleans).
