Memphis owner Michael Heisley was asked about rumors surrounding an O.J. Mayo trade to the Warriors.

"Right now, no one has offered me something that I think is better. Golden State called us at one point, and we called them at one point. It never got together and couldn't be done. I'm not going to go into what it was; what we would do and not do. There's not a player on my team that somebody hasn't talked to me about trading for. Not one. It just so happens that Golden State has diarrhea of the mouth. But I'm not going to talk potential trades."
I guess Heisley couldn't say, "I can't believe our incompetent GM was dumb enough to offer Mayo AND Thabeet for Monta Ellis, and the no direction Warriors were even dumber to turn it down." Don Nelson might say it though, so stay tuned.

    No. You have it wrong.

    Heisley is saying that about Golden State because it was the Grizzlies that turned down the potential trade (that would have saved Cohan big $$$). In turn the GSW's, which generally have a hard time keeping trade rumors private, went public to reporters that they turned down the offer. It was a half-assed attempt at damage control and Heisley is calling Rowell, Cohan and Riley on it.

    Grizzlies rejected the trade. Warriors wanted the $$$ from it. Rowell, Cohan and Riley shat their pants on the damage control and claimed they rejected the trade. This is what Heisley is speaking towards.
