An NBA deal went awry after team officials appeared to be confused over which player, both with the last name Brooks, would be traded. Wojnarowski reported that Ariza would have gone to the Wizards while Wizards players Kelly Oubre Jr. and Austin Rivers would have gone to the Memphis Grizzlies. Meanwhile, Grizzlies players Wayne Selden Jr. and Dillon Brooks would then be traded to the Suns. The trade seemed easy enough but then Wojnarowski had some breaking news that concerned Brooks. The Suns thought they were getting Dillon Brooks, but the Grizzlies did not want to trade him, killing the deal.
