Trevor Ariza agrees to $32M deal with Rockets

The Houston Rockets have agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with free agent small forward Trevor Ariza, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.

Ariza was being heavily courted by the Washington Wizards team that he played for last season but ultimately decided to join Dwight Howard and James Harden on the Rockets team that went 54-28 last season and fell in the first round of the playoffs to the Portland Trailblazers.
