The deal that, at times, was announced as "done" or close to completion was thought to be one of a few different packages that the Trail Blazers would have sent to Charlotte for Wallace.
One deal focused on Andre Miller and Marcus Camby; the other one included Joel Przybilla and picks. ProBasketballTalk said the Blazers wanted to trade Rudy Fernandez in a package for Wallace.
Fernandez's agent, Andy Miller, stated that his client would ask for a buyout and return to Spain if traded.
Yahoo! speculated that owner Michael Jordan has grown reluctant to trade Wallace, and head coach Paul Silas prefers ownership not to make such a deal either.
