Houston Rockets: Trevor Ariza Year End Review – The Ariza Effect
When the Houston Rockets decided to let Chandler Parsons walk over the off season, many fans were wondering how the Rockets would fill his role. Instead of signing another player of Parsons’ offensive caliber, Houston took this opportunity to shore up their defense by signing veteran wing man Trevor Ariza.
This wouldn’t be Ariza’s first stint in Houston, but it would be the first time where he wasn’t expected to play a different style of ball than he’s accustomed to since the offensive burdens would be shouldered by the likes of James Harden and Dwight Howard.
