The Washington Wizards, Memphis Grizzlies and Phoenix Suns had agreed in principle on a three-team trade that was headlined by sending Trevor Ariza to Washington and Kelly Oubre Jr. to Phoenix, but the deal ultimately fell through because the Suns thought they were receiving Dillon Brooks, not MarShon Brooks.

Once Memphis cleared it up that they were offering MarShon instead of Dillon, the deal was called off, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

Wojnarowski had tweeted earlier in the evening that the deal was in “advanced talks.” According to his report, the Grizzlies and Suns didn’t communicate directly, rather letting the Wizards facilitate the deal on both ends.

Phoenix and Washington are apparently still trying to negotiate a trade centered on Ariza :

Several NBA players, including Dillon Brooks, reacted to the confusing mess on Twitter:
