He vetoed that trade because the NBA was the acting owner of the Hornets and they had to do what was best to attract potential buyers. Here's Mike Dunleavy explaining why that trade didn't happen. Skip to 10:46:
The Lakers didn't have to give up any young players. They would've only lost two aging players in Gasol and Odom. It was like, "Hey we've used up their primes so you can have their declining years. Now let us have that superstar PG." The Clippers' deal was better.
