Trevor Ariza trade to Washington Wizards dead

NBA -- Lakers eye familiar face for playoffs push

With the Nets assistant GM Trajan Langdon attending the Suns Spurs game, and Ariza's recent DNP even though being healthy, it looks like trade talks are advancing. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon.

Ellington and Ross join Phoenix Suns forward Trevor Ariza on the Lakers' reported wish list.

If an agreement is reached, the trade would not be official until Saturday when players who, like Ariza, were signed in summer free agency become eligible to be traded.

The Suns and Wizards are still interested in a deal involving Ariza and are searching for a third team. The discrepancy between MarShon Brooks and Dillon Brooks reportedly caused the Phoenix Suns to believe they were receiving Dillon Brooks when the Grizzlies were agreeing to trade MarShon Brooks.

The nixed deal puts Ariza back in limbo.

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




According to Wojnarowski, Memphis and Phoenix did not communicate directly on the trade, instead using Washington as "a conduit" on coordinating the three-team trade.

Soon, Wallace and Washington GM Ernie Grunfeld were on the phone, and they were disagreeing over the contents of the trade, sources said.

The Houston Rockets have emerged as possible suitors for Los Angeles Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Washington was eager to reacquire Ariza, who had a tremendous impact on the team's locker room in his previous stop there.

If the Lakers are going to acquire Ariza, it will take at least one other team to get the deal done.

Ariza's veteran presence and ability to play tough perimeter defense makes him an attractive piece for contenders like the Lakers who are now in fifth place in the Western Conference with a 16-10 record.

Information from ESPN's Zach Lowe was used in this report.
