The famous forward Trevor Ariza has been involved in a lot of trade rumors lately. Most recently he was reported to be already dealt to the Wizards in what seemed like a done deal.
There was one big issue Memphis & Phoenix Suns couldn’t seem to agree on which Brooks would be sent off in the trade.
As part of a three-team deal nearing completion: Ariza to the Wizards, Kelly Oubre to the Memphis Grizzlies and Austin Rivers and two Grizzlies role players to Suns, league sources tell ESPN. https://t.co/1EmRCHrjOP

The issue was Phoenix wanted to acquire MarShon Brooks or Dillon Brooks.
The guard Dillon Brooks was considered to be too valuable to be a part of the trade, Memphis then cancelled the deal and discontinued talks.
Memphis & Phoenix couldn’t agree on which Brooks they’d be sending to the Suns.
“Deal’s suddenly in peril. Memphis and Phoenix didn’t communicate directly on trade, using Washington as a conduit in coordinating the 3-team deal, sources tell @ZachLowe_NBA and me. Grizzlies believe they were trading MarShon, but somehow Suns believed it was Dillon.”
Ariza has played some good basketball throughout his career and is considered a missing piece for a lot of teams looking to fill out their rosters with good players.
