Milwaukee is having buyers remorse with Larry Sanders after signing him to a four-year deal worth $44 million. Recently Larry Sanders and Gary Neal got into a heated argument after Saturday's lopsided loss, and Neal shouted, "I earned my money. Why don't you try it?"
Memphis is looking to add more perimeter shooting to go along with it's recent acquisition of Courntey Lee & hopefully clear up some cap room to resign Zack Randolph.
Washington is looking to better their frontcourt with all the recent injuries, and looking to improve defensively, while adding youth who are ready to contribute now and long term for the Wizards.
In a 3 team, 9 player deal - Memphis will receive Caron Butler, Trevor Ariza & Miroslav Raduljica. Milwaukee will receive Tayshaun Prince, Mike Miller, Kosta Koufas & Jan Vesely. In return Washington will receive Larry Sanders & Ed Davis.
Memphis is hoping to make a push later in the season based on the progress of Marc Gasol's knee injury. Milwaukee is ready to cut all ties with Larry Sanders and most likely will waive Mike Miller once the deal is done. Keeping their roster at 15. Talks are stalled at the moment as Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld is hesitant to pull the trigger just yet as Ariza is having one of his best years as a pro in Washington, but wants to make room for the 3rd overall pick Otto Porter. Look for this deal to pick back up near the All-Star break.
