Report: Trevor Ariza signs 1-year deal with Suns, leaving Rockets

#Trevor Ariza

Trevor Ariza is signing a one-year deal worth $15 million with the Phoenix Suns, according to Yahoo Sports.

The 33-year-old forward was rumoured to be looking for a deal in the four-year, $50 to $60 million range, but it would appear he is going to sign up for a shorter term deal with the Suns to see if the team is heading in the right direction.

If things go great this year, then he may sign a longer deal next season in free agency.

The Suns added Arizona center Deandre Ayton with the first-overall pick in the draft and acquired two-time national champion Mikal Bridges in a trade with the 76ers as well.

With those two players in addition to one of the best young scoring guards in the NBA in Devin Booker, the 2017 No. 4 overall pick in Josh Jackson, and underrated scorer T.J. Warren, they may have the pieces in place to make a significant improvement on one of the NBA's worst records this season.

Ariza is a solid two-way wing who averaged 11.7 points and 4.4 rebounds last season. He signed a four-year, $32 million contract with Houston in July 2014.

Ariza has spent 14 years in the NBA and won a championship with the Lakers in 2008-09. He has a career average of 10.5 points.

All signings will not be official until the end of the NBA moratorium period on 6 July.
