Default Trevor Ariza, would help?

I think Trevor Ariza could help us on defence and could come cheap. It could be the cheapest solution to our problems.

Any thoughts??

I don't think he would come that cheap.

He is having a very good season in LA.

I doubt it would happen, Phil Jackson really likes him I hear.

Ariza wouldn't be cheap at all Lakers think highly of him. He's a pretty big upgrade from moon too, hustles and plays good D not really a chucker.

Trevor Ariza is cheaper than other solutions as Wallace, Howard and so on. However let's see cheaper solutions than Ariza...anyother option? From my point of view he is the cheapest valid option, because it is and upgrade of what we have.
But let's see a cheaper option than Ariza...come on... want to hear it !?

Agree.. he's been doing so well off the bench, and Lakers need him when Luke Walton and Lamar Odom are injured..

other "cheap" options are going after the SFs at Golden State (Azuibuike, Wright, Morrow), Kleize or JR Smith from Denver...

i still like Carlos Delfino as cheap option

I'll stick with Moon, who comes even cheaper. I don't see how Ariza is an upgrade in any big way. He's also been in the league for years and did nothing noteworthy until he fell into a really good team - anyone could look good with guys like Kobe, Pau, Fisher around him. Moon is probably a better shooter too.

The Raps have the free agent rights to Carlos this offseason and Bryan Colangelo said in an interview that he would like to bring Delfino back to the team if a contract can be agreed upon... The only downside is that Carlos wouldn't be back with the Raptors until next year if he decides to sign with Toronto.

Ariza doesn't have anywhere near the offensive game that those players have.

His offense is that much better than Moon's. Ariza is a defensive specialist and a solid rebounder.

I'll stick with Moon since he is even cheaper.
