According to Marc Stein anyway. Apparently his injury nixed the deal.
No other details given. I wonder who we were going to trade Dunleavy for. Okafor and West seem like the only likely salary matches. I suppose Hornets could have sent a package of 3-4 players back, but that seems unlikely considering our full roster.Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that the Pacers had advanced trade discussions last month with New Orleans on a swap that would have sent Dunleavy to the Hornets. But the teams never came to final terms on a trade before Dunleavy suffered a fractured left thumb Feb. 22 that required surgery, sidelining him for 6-8 weeks and thus squelching any remaining hope he had for a trade in the final year of a contract paying him $10.6 million this season.
And no, this doesn't look connected to the Mayo deal. If Dunleavy's injury caused it to be dropped, then it couldn't be connected to the deadline deal involving Mayo.
If I had to guess, I'd say it was for Okafor.
