Detroit's wheeling and dealing makeover reportedly continues with the shipping of Trevor Ariza to his fourth team in a week.
From NBA Twitter and media reports
Detroit’s wheeling and dealing makeover reportedly continues with the shipping of Trevor Ariza to his fourth team in a week. The veteran swingman is, per multiple reports, headed to Oklahoma City once Houston makes trading him and the No. 16 overall pick of this week’s Draft to Detroit official. The Thunder will also receive Justin Jackson from Dallas as well as unspecified draft compensation. The Mavericks will acquire James Johnson from Oklahoma City, while Detroit will receive Delon Wright from Dallas.
One more time amid the madness so we're all clear:
Dallas gets James Johnson (from OKC)
Detroit gets Delon Wright (from Dallas)
OKC gets Trevor Ariza (from Detroit), Justin Jackson (Dallas) and draft compensation to be explained later

Troy Weaver’s first free agent foray as Detroit’s general manager has been busy. As of early Saturday morning, he had already swung reported deals to sign Jerami Grant, Mason Plumlee, Josh Jackson, and Jahlil Okafor, as well as trade for Dewayne Dedmon. The Pistons are reportedly working on a sign-and-trade deal that would send Christian Wood to Houston, though what Detroit would receive in that deal is as yet unknown.
