Trevor ArizaThe Orlando Magic have re-signed restricted free agent forward Trevor Ariza, General Manager Otis Smith announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal are not disclosed.

Ariza (6’8”, 200, 6/30/85) played in 57 games with both the Magic and New York last season, averaging 4.6 ppg., 3.8 rpg., 1.1 apg. and 1.00 stlpg. in 17.5 minpg. He was traded to Orlando by the Knicks on Feb. 22, 2006, along with the expiring contract of Anfernee Hardaway, in exchange for Steve Francis. During 21 games with Orlando, Ariza averaged 4.7 ppg. and 3.9 rpg. in 13.8 minpg.

“We are very pleased to bring Trevor back, as he is a key part of our young core,” General Manager Otis Smith said. “His athleticism and explosiveness will be a great asset to our team on both ends of the floor.”

Last season, Ariza scored in double figures seven times (four with Orlando), including a season-high 13 points twice, the last time on Apr. 19 @ Indiana, when he also ripped down a career-best 12 rebounds. More active on the defensive end, Ariza recorded at least one steal in 33 games (11 with the Magic) and two-or-more steals 17 times.

“Trevor is a young player with a bright future and we are excited to have re-signed him,” added Head Coach Brian Hill. “He has the ability to be a shutdown-type defender and will add to the versatility of our team.”

Originally selected by New York during the second round (43rd overall) of the 2002 NBA Draft, Ariza has played in 137 career NBA regular season games with New York and Orlando, averaging 5.3 ppg., 3.4 rpg. and 1.1 apg. in 17.4 minpg.
