Default Trevor Ariza to sign with the Rockets

Quote:
Trevor Ariza has made a verbal commitment to sign with the Houston Rockets, according to sources close to the process.

The 6-foot-8 Ariza averaged 8.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists for the Lakers last season, which ended with the NBA championship.

With at least five teams pursuing Ariza, the Lakers appeared unwilling to pay him more than the $5.6 million mid-level exception.

Thanks for everything Trevor! I hope your basketball career takes off in Houston.

Why didn't he sign with the Cavaliers?

LeBron has certainly been a fine FA recruiter for Cle, hasn't he?

Still will be a fan of Trevor's. Thanks for a great year. But your agent ****ed you bad. MLE from Houston as opposed to MLE from LA (your hometown team, your perfect fit, and a contender for many years to come). Good luck

Ariza fits more the Rockets without Yao because he is quick and a big slasher.
Rockets are going to be a run and gun team next year.
Remember that Ariza is younger than Artest.

I think word around the league is LeBron is bolting in '10. I'm firmly convinced of this. None of this makes sense.

Nice, at least we get something! Can you guys who've seen him play for a while tell me about the type of player Ariza can become?
