But Wojnarowski then corrected himself, noting it was not the 22-year-old wing but rather his 29-year-old teammate MarShon Brooks.

Phoenix signed Ariza, a 15-year pro, to a one-year, $15 million deal in June. With Memphis' strong desire to hold on to Dillon, they eventually pulled themselves out of the deal with the Wizards and Suns.

Grizzlies and Suns officials never communicated directly until the trade was nearly finalized, leading to the confusion. According to Wojnarowski, the Lakers and Suns have been trying to include a third team that would acquire Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as part of a potentially larger deal.

"(Grizzlies owner) Robert Pera did not have any conversation with Suns owner Robert Sarver about the reported three-way trade", Wojnarowski quoted Wallace as saying. We were floored to learn of the reports involving Dillon Brooks in the reported trade.

As the trade market hashes itself out early this season, Caldwell-Pope has several interested suitors across the league, a telling sign for the 2019 free agent. Meanwhile, the Wizards were playing in Brooklyn on Saturday, and as CBS Sports' James Herbert reported, Oubre and Rivers left the arena thinking they'd been traded. "They were saying their goodbyes - so yeah".

Buckner also relayed some comments from Rivers when he found out (or at least thought) he had been traded.

"I like what the Lakers have done", Pippen said on The Jump.

Ariza and his agent, Aaron Mintz of CAA, had hoped that the Los Angeles Lakers could complete a deal with the Suns, but that became more hard to navigate in recent days, league sources said.

Are the Spurs a good fit for Caldwell-Pope and do they have the right assets to get a deal done?

Either way, this certainly opens the door for others to start negotiating with the Suns.
