David Aldridge: Per source, a trade call was requested w/the league Friday. It is pro forma for the league to double-check with all teams involved to make sure everyone agrees. It was then—before a trade call was officially set up—that the Suns said Dillion, and the Grizzlies said MarShon.

More on Dillon Brooks Trade?

David Aldridge: Last thing: another source says this reached ownership, with Sarver and Grizz owner Robert Pera talking w/each other. And the name they discussed was Dillon. So: no guarantees, of course, but the smart money is on this deal getting resurrected in some form, quickly.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Washington believes it was told Dillon Brooks in conversations with Memphis. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon. One rival GM texted me and said: "Maybe Washington can put Scott Brooks in if there has to be a Brooks in the deal." Welcome to NBA Trade Season.
Fred Katz: The Grizzlies and Suns discussed Dillon Brooks directly, multiple league sources tell The Athletic.
A Grizzlies source said that both the Grizzlies and Suns initially negotiated through Washington, which was trying to acquire Suns forward Trevor Ariza. Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld was reportedly the go-between. "We were only talking to (Washington)," the source said. "Made very clear to Grunfeld that it was MarShon. Somehow it appears he told them Dillon."
Ariza wasn't actually eligible to be traded until Saturday and a trade agreed to in principle had not been sent, in writing, to the league office, which would have presumably revealed the confusion. The proposed deal leaked to the media while both the Grizzlies and Wizards were still playing, and conflicting media reports apparently served that purpose instead.
Chris Herrington: Wayne Selden and MarShon Brooks were both told when leaving the floor tonight that they were being traded. They'll be at shootaround with the Grizzlies tomorrow. Life in the NBA, but still an awkward situation.
The Grizzlies believed they were trading MarShon Brooks to Phoenix, but the Suns believed it was Dillon. But Memphis would not put Dillon Brooks in the trade, sources said, leading to the agreement being called off.

According to NBA insider Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel, Dragic has a preference, which is to join fellow Slovanian star Luka Doncic, in Dallas. Writes Winderman: “The sense is Goran works his way toward his preferred (and most viable) option of the Mavericks, to close out the season alongside Slovenian compatriot Luka Doncic. … Goran already has proven amenable to a bench role, something he thrived in with the Heat.”
