Forward Dillon Brooks may or may not have been involved in Grizzlies trade talks over the past week

The deal, as long as it goes through, also includes a 2020 Grizzlies second-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick being sent to Washington.

The Suns want to land a playmaking guard and a draft asset as the price of unloading Ariza, sources said.

Story on @TheAthleticNBA: Rockets emerge as possible suitor for Lakers' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in multi-team scenarios. Those demands were seemingly not met, as they declined a three-team deal. When news first broke that the Lakers were engaged in trade talks with the Suns, it was Caldwell-Pope being mentioned by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN as the player being shipped out of Los Angeles.

However, the Suns reportedly thought it was Dillon Brooks in the deal and not MarShon.

The Washington Wizards have reached an agreement to acquire Phoenix Suns forward Trevor Ariza in a three-team deal, league sources said told ESPN on Friday night.

Now averaging less than 10 points a game, shooting just around 35% from three and not performing to the same level defensively as he did in Houston, the Lakers have hoped to revitalize his season.

Los Angeles, which is reportedly interested in trading for Phoenix Suns' forward Trevor Ariza, could reportedly send Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to the Houston Rockets as part of a three-team deal.

The Grizzlies are acquiring a fourth-year reserve in Oubre, who is averaging a career-high 13 points despite the bench role. Rivers, who the Wizards acquired last summer from the Los Angeles Clippers, has averaged 7.0 points and 2.4 rebounds per game this season. He averaged almost 26 minutes during 65 games for Los Angeles back in the 2014-15 season.
