Channel 2's Dan Miller just reported that Ariza is going to sign with the Rockets.
His agent got absolutely punked by the Lakers FO.
So he's going to resort to playing for a non-contender for the same price.
Cavs gets shutout
Cavs fans are actually thinking rationally and laying some of the blame on the inability to attract FA's on LBJ''s inability to commit to the team. Who wants to sign long term if they know he'll be gone next year?
I like him on the Rockets. I think he'll get a chance to continue to improve. I'm not sure what the Rockets are thinking though if Yao really is done.
For his sake i hope he was really offended and wanted to leave. If this was his agent playing a game and he didn't want to, the kid must be upset.

RealGM: Basketball Wiretap Archives: Ariza Agrees To Sign With Houston
This seems like a better signing than Villano-D... someone that can harrass Lebron... also would have made Tay expendable for a big.
How much are they paying Ariza?
I think the full MLE.
As long as Cavs didn't get him, I'm fine.
They are going to regret this.............
Are you talking James Posey part deux?
I'm trying to figure out where he plays b/c of Shane Battier . . .
Ariza/Battier or vice vera
It's not a bad line-up if T-mac and/or Yao get healthy
If my aunt had a pair, she'd by my uncle.
If, If was a fifth, we'd all be drunk.
T-Mac & Yao healthy......LMBO, I guess stranger things have happened.
Ariza must be happy with just one ship. Houston is not a contender. Somebody help me here..............he couldn't have signed with anyone else that had a better chance to win a ship?
The Cavs, Spurs, Celtics? None of these teams didn't want his services, or they couldn't afford him?
Ariza's no Ron-Ron.
Lakers win again.
u know what the Ojays used to say...______$$$$$$$$$$$_$$_$$!!
The Lakers were smart for not giving him that money.
I thought Lakers offered him the full MLE and he was upset about that.
Ariza's change of heart ?

Re: Ariza's change of heart ?
Uh oh . . .
edited to add;
On LA radio today he supposedly confirmed going to HOU. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Interesting article from ESPN;
More on ESPN, but mostly repetitive.
