Dec. 14 updates
The previously agreed upon three-team trade that would've sent Trevor Ariza to the Wizards is now dead, due to confusion over which Brooks -- MarShon or Dillon -- the Suns were set to receive in the deal, sources tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.
The Washington Wizards have agreed in principle to acquire forward Trevor Ariza from the Phoenix Suns in a three-team , league sources tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal cannot be finalized until Saturday, when Ariza becomes eligible to be traded after signing with the Suns as a free agent this summer. The 15th-year swingman previously played for the Wizards from 2012-2014, shooting a career-high 40.7 percent from 3-point range in the 2013-14 season. In the deal, Washington will send Kelly Oubre Jr. to the Memphis Grizzlies, while the Suns will receive Austin Rivers from Washington and MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden from Memphis.

Chicago Bulls forward Jabari Parker will not see consistent minutes moving forward, sources told ESPN's Malika Andrews. With Parker out of the regular rotation, it's unlikely that the Bulls would exercise the team option on the second year of his deal. There have been no conversations between Parker and his representatives on a potential buyout, but that could become an increasing possibility closer to the trade deadline.

NBA teams remain uncertain about the trade bonus in John Wall's contract, league sources confirmed to ESPN's Bobby Marks. As Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier this month, the All-Star point guard -- along with the rest of the Washington Wizards roster -- is available to discuss in trade scenarios. Interest in Wall is close to nonexistent around the league, sources told ESPN. Still, teams are going through the complicated exercise of trying to understand how a Wall trade would even work.
