The Suns will "part ways" with Austin Rivers after his acquisition is made official, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
The end of an era, truly. Both parties agree that Rivers fits better with a team aiming for the playoffs, so ultimately the Suns dealt Trevor Ariza for a few months of pending RFA Kelly Oubre. Rivers will be free to sign with anyone upon clearing waivers. This is good news for De'Anthony Melton, Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson. Oubre will still cramp things a bit but not having to contend with Rivers makes things a lot more palatable. Melton remains the only one to own in 12-team leagues right now but we'll re-evaluate everyone once Oubre joins the mix.
