DeAndre Jordan had 20 points and 23 rebounds in the Clippers' 116-102 win over the Cavaliers on Friday.
LeBron James was asked about the possible trade Cleveland could have made for Jordan at the deadline.
"I don't play fantasy basketball," James said. "I knew the conversations were going on from the outside. I seen it. If it would have happened it would have gave us a boost but it didn't happen so you move on."
Jordan can become a free agent in the offseason.
The Cavaliers instead made a pair of moves that netted Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Rodney Hood and George Hill.
