Per a league source, the Philadelphia 76ers could serve as the third team in the potential Lakers-Phoenix Suns trade centered on Ariza. Per source, the Lakers are mulling around the idea of giving up Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and a future first-round pick.
In this trade scenario, the Suns will part ways with Ariza and the Philadelphia 76ers will offer Markelle Fultz and Shake Milton.
In the rumored three-way deal, Trevor Ariza and Shake Milton will head to the Los Angeles Lakers, with Markelle Fultz joining the Phoenix Suns.
Rounding out the deal, the Sixers will acquire Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and a future first-round pick.
For clarification purposes:
In this trade scenario: KCP would head out to Philadelphia & Markelle Fultz would join the Phoenix Suns. https://t.co/hBz6tr04kq

This deal will not be able to launchpad until December 15 as both Ariza and Caldwell-Pope just signed new contracts during the NBA offseason.
