Lakers Refused To Include Core Players In Ariza Trade

Hoops Rumors

It took two attempts but the Suns struck a deal to part with veteran swingman Trevor Ariza, dealing him to the Wizards for Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers. However, after a three-team deal cratered on Friday, Suns re-engaged the Lakers in trade talks, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

As we relayed earlier today, the Lakers were “eager” to acquire Ariza as he and agent Aaron Mintz tried to a broker a deal that would land him in purple and gold. The Lakers were unwilling to include one of their core players and the Suns moved on to complete a deal with Washington, Wojnarowski added.
