On Monday, Trevor Ariza will celebrate his 29th birthday. On Tuesday, he will have reason to celebrate the start of free agency.
While Ariza isn't the big name of fellow free agents like LeBron and Carmelo, he's coming off a very solid offensive season and is expected to peak the interest of quite a few teams.
According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles, sources indicate that the Rockets, Mavericks, Pistons, Clippers and Suns are all expected to pursue Ariza once free agency opens. Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders adds the Cavaliers, Lakers and Raptors as other teams rumored to have interest in the 6-foot-8, 220-pound swingman.
