I hope Rockets pay the man. He will be a talented player and has improve greatly this year. I hope he doesn't come back to bite the Lakers in the future. Unless, he comes back and play for them in his prime.

It's sort of sad to see Trevor Ariza leave because he came to LA as an unknown commodity and really established himself as an up and coming player. I would have loved to see him continue to mature and improve his game in the coming years (in LA). With that said, Ariza's got a great opportunity to establish himself in Houston. He'll get a lot of playing time to prove to people he's a player with or without Kobe & Gasol.

Yeah dude, his game has much potential. T.A hit clutch shots throughout the playoffs and his defense...well...you saw those two CRITICAL steals against Denver.

Thanks for everything Trever, good luck

I still can't figure out what David Lee is doing... Trevor Ariza is signing for the midlevel exception, the only difference is that he's on the Houston Rockets, a team stuck in the mud.

It would've been really interesting to see Trevor Ariza in Cleveland...

Fantastic news. we get a player who is just about tohit his prime and will fit really well on offense and defense


So far it looks like this

Brooks
Ariza
Battier
Scola
Hayes.

It's paramount to get a Center now.

Default Re: Source: Ariza agrees to sign with the Rockets

What I don't get is why did Ariza and Artest didn't join forces and demand a S&T between the Rockets, especially from Artest's pov, he could've gotten far more money that way. Oh well, at least we get something out of the FA market (at least it's not like a few years ago, when Lakers spent their whole MLE on Vlad Rad).


BTW, I think this is fairly indicative that the Rockets are out of signing Gortat, if indeed they are throwing almost full MLE at Ariza (he still needs bit of the MLE to sign the rookies).

Great team player, has a lot of potential and very atheletic, doesn't need the ball to be effective. Good consitant three point shooter. Can develop into a solid player for a championship team, if u have the right players.

He is lenghty and good defender, he just needs to add some weight. Quick hands and will steal in the clutch. Very good slasher. Good at put back and very sneaky.

he is evolving before our eyes.
I've been following him since UCLA.
He came into the league as an athlete defensive specialist...who could also finish on the breaks.
Last season, he finally developed some offensive skills. He is no longer afraid to take the shot...and he can knock them down.

Not a great facilitator. limited mid-range game. getting better and better at both slashing and long-range.

Very solid defender.

But, imo, not worth more than $7m per.
