It seems Mike Bibby wanted to be traded because the Kings wanted to trade him. Make sense? While Bibby has often spoke of his affinity for Sacramento and his time there, he was peeved that the Kings were so eager to move him. And by the time the negotiations were actually taking place, I'm told Bibby's agent, David Falk, was heavily involved in trying to make a deal work with Cleveland.
Communication wasn't an issue because, coincidentally, Falk also represents Cavs
exec Danny Ferry. When Ferry couldn't get the deal to go through, I'm guessing he was uttering words of frustration that sound similar to his agent's name.
