From what I hear. His agent screwed him over. And Trevor said he didn't know what was going on with Kupchak and David Lee were negotiating the contract.

Yep, based on everything I've heard Trevor say about going to the Rockets it sounds to me like he's pissed at his agent for not keeping him in LA but he doesn't wanna throw him under the bus so he throws in subtle hints that it's his agents fault.

If Ariza wanted "star money", and the Lakers basically came back with "you're not a star", then it seems clear why Ariza left.

On the Lakers, Ariza will never have a chance to be a star. It's simply impossible when the team has Gasol/Bynum/Kobe/Odom on it. But he'll never suck either, because he'll never have to do much. He'll remain in status quo for quite a long time.

Maybe he'll never amount to much in Houston, and it's definitely a gamble. But Adelman's a pretty good offensive coach who often put his players in position to succeed. So in that sense, if Ariza's true goal is to be a star in this league(which I personally belive he's incapable of doing), then Houston is the right decision.
