I wonder for how many years? The reason he may have chosen the Rockets is due to having more room to develop here, as opposed to being pigeon-holed as just a spot-up shooter/defender in LA.

Adelman's a pretty good offensive coach, and could drive up his value for the next contract if he does well. Something he has no chance of doing in LA.

Give me a break with the blaming his agent like guys who run professional nba teams worth hundreds of millions base their personel decisions on BS hype statements from sports agents. The Lakers signed Ron Artest instead of Trevor Ariza because they wanted Ron Artest over Ariza and Ariza asking for a MLE contract in principal a week before anyone can actually sign anything wouldnt change their decision.

Why would the Lakers offer him the MLE when they had a chance at Artest? He took the best deal for himself. And he even got a ring too.

Good luck, Trev

So far it looks like this

Brooks
Ariza
Battier
Scola
Hayes.

It's paramount to get a Center now.

That is one uninspiring list right there...Not hating, just being honest...

So you're saying no other team wanted Shaq, but Cleveland?

Sad to see him go, great team player...I'm relieved that he didn't sign with another title contender.

Put Tmac in their please. Ariza ain't a scorer like that. Tmac is working out with the Guru of trainers this offseason Tim Grover. Go look up his Resume.

The Cavs getting Ariza would have meant Bron playing at pf with Ariza operating at the wing and that would not have worked to well since Lebron would struggle with lengthy pf's like Pau. This could be a blessing in disguise.

THANK YOU TREVOR!! you were quietly one of the biggest steals (Cooky and Mo Evans? hah) in recent years. You are probably my second favorite player in the league right now. Good luck with the Rockets!!!
