More on Austin Rivers Trade?

John Gambadoro: Suns sending Ariza to Washington for Oubre and Rivers. Darren Wolfson: #Twolves were not involved in 3rd team talks that fell apart. As we approach Feb. 7, Tolliver is worth watching. Enough teams are monitoring his situation here, including the Lakers who tried for Ariza. No Taj tonight, so maybe AT finally gets some run again.Darren Wolfson agregado,
Bobby Marks: All three players, Trevor Ariza ($15M), Austin Rivers ($12.65M) and Kelly Oubre Jr. ($3.3M) are on expiring contracts. Oubre Jr. will be a restricted free agent and the Suns will have the right to tender the forward a $4.5M qualifying offer. The Wizards will create a $3.3M trade exception to go along with a $5.45M, $1.3M, $957K and $694K exception. The Washington tax bill will drop from $9.8M to $8.3M but will likely increase based on the team now falling below the minimum roster requirement of 14.
Chris Miller: Confirming @Washington Wizards have traded @Kelly Oubre @Austin Rivers to @Phoenix Suns for @Trevor Ariza. First reported by @Adrian Wojnarowski #DCFamily
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.
“Acquiring Austin gives us another versatile, experienced player who provides scoring and playmaking,” said Grunfeld. “He is coming off a career year and his ability to create offense for himself and others will help our second unit and allow us to play a variety of lineups throughout the season.”
Sam Amick: Confirming Clippers trade Austin Rivers to Washington for Marcin Gortat. There were some who thought a day like this would never come so long as Doc was still there. ESPN first reported.
They Clippers have called about almost every available small forward type, but no one is in a rush to take Jamal Crawford, Austin Rivers, and a distant first-round pick. That won't get them Wilson Chandler, and the Wiz threw their phones on the floor when the Clippers inquired about Otto Porter, per league sources.
Jackson pursued Rivers as a free agent in the summer but was outbid. Rivers is the son of Clippers coach/general manager Doc Rivers, making such a maneuver complicated. The Knicks had some interest in Crawford as a free agent as he fits Jackson’s profile as a big guard.
