The all-in-one Raptors interested in Ariza thread

Quote:
Trevor Ariza's agent David Lee said Monday that the Lakers won't receive a hometown discount from his client.

Lee declined to reveal how much of a raise Ariza will seek when he becomes an unrestricted free agent, but he said his client should make him the most coveted wing player on the market.

Among the teams Lee expects to pursue Ariza are Detroit, Portland and Toronto.

"It's a question of how committed the Lakers are to competing again," Lee said. "If everyone else stood still, you could see what happens when a piece is missing, but the reality is teams out there are positioning themselves to be competitive. When other teams are getting better, you can't afford to rest on your laurels."
We may want to get him before Hedo if Marion walks. Cheaper!

Ariza is horribly overrated.
i do not want to see us waste our millions on this kid. it would be a horrible FA signing for us.

I agree. But he isn't that bad. He is sort of a duplicate of DeRozan.

Before Hedo? Seriously? But I guess it depends on the money.

Talent wise i'd rather have Marion...then Hedo...then Ariza.


But $$ wise....Marion...Ariza...Hedo.


The thing is Ariza won't come here for MLE, we'll have to outbid someone for him, which would be overpaying imo.

I sat next to Sid Sexiero at a football game.

He was a cool dude and his wife was pretty hot.

You better not have been hitting on his wife, or Sids eyebrows will eat you.

DeRozan and Ariza would be a very nice combo for years to come out on the wing. Both would start.
