Johnson, 52, is a former partial owner of the Lakers.

The three-team trade, which involved the Hornets, Lakers, and the Houston Rockets, was nixed by the league late last night. According to NBA spokesman Tim Frank, the league “declined to make the trade for basketball reasons.” Several owners also publically complained about the deal before it was cancelled, claiming the trade would hurt the league’s competitive balance.
