BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — With the Chris Paul trade finally behind him, New Orleans Hornets general manager Dell Demps is back to his regular routine of traveling the country nonstop focusing on his current roster and the franchise’s future.

Demps attended the Hornets’ 93-78 home loss to Phoenix on Friday, then left home at 4:30 a.m. Saturday for the Bay Area. He arrived in time to have breakfast with his parents then attend the UCLA-California afternoon game for scouting. He planned a late lunch with sister, Darrell, before meeting up with the Hornets in Sacramento ahead of their Sunday game against the Kings.

Demps reiterated his support for Commissioner David Stern, saying Saturday there “was never a deal in place” to send Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers. Paul wound up with the Clippers.
