Sources: Suns cut loose recently acquired Rivers

The Phoenix Suns are parting ways with guard Austin Rivers just two days after he arrived as part of the Trevor Ariza deal to Washington, league sources told ESPN.

Phoenix now ranks no. 1 in salaries ($33.5M) that count against the cap and are not on the roster (dead money). The Suns will be responsible for roughly $8M of what is owed to Austin Rivers once he clears waivers. Rivers will have a $12.65M cap hit.

After hitting 4/8 from 3 in a win at New York, TJ Warren is now shooting 45.2% from downtown. Warren has a $250K bonus for 3-pointers attempted (185) and three point percentage (37%). Warren is on pace to meet the criteria for both.

Sources: Wizards reach trade for Suns' Ariza

After an initial three-team deal fell apart Friday night, the Suns are trading Trevor Ariza to the Wizards and will get Austin Rivers and Kelly Oubre Jr. in return, league sources told ESPN.

Bobby Marks ESPN 

All three players, Trevor Ariza ($15M), Austin Rivers ($12.65M) and Kelly Oubre Jr. ($3.3M) are on expiring contracts. Oubre Jr. will be a restricted free agent and the Suns will have the right to tender the forward a $4.5M qualifying offer. The Wizards will create a $3.3M trade exception to go along with a $5.45M, $1.3M, $957K and $694K exception. The Washington tax bill will drop from $9.8M to $8.3M but will likely increase based on the team now falling below the minimum roster requirement of 14.
