Rivers was originally traded to the Suns with Kelly Oubre earlier this month, but Phoenix’s front office and Rivers agreed he was a better fit with a veteran team and parted ways.
The signing comes days after Chris Paul, Rivers’ former teammate of five years, suffered a right hamstring injury.
Rivers, 26, is expected to sign a one-year, fully guaranteed deal. He averaged 7.2 points per game for the Wizards this season.
