Trevor Ariza has been traded to the Wizards for Kelly Oubre Jr. and Austin Rivers.
The Grizzlies are no longer part of the deal and there are no picks involved. Ariza is expected to take over Kelly Oubre’s 26.0 minute per game role and Tomas Satoransky should see increased minutes with the departure of Rivers. It’s unclear what the Wizards are trying to do here, replacing the 23-year old soon-to-be restricted free-agent Oubre with a 33-year old Ariza. They aren’t contending this year and still aren’t close to being under the cap.
