“Your general manager and coach are meeting with Trevor (Thursday),” Lee said. “Trevor and Rick spoke by phone (Wednesday).
“This is a five-year commitment. It’s important for Trevor to go to a place where he his wanted and can contribute.”
According to Lee, Houston would be a perfect fit.
“The Rockets have liked Trevor for a long time,” Lee said. “They covet what he can do.”
Lee said he has already received a number of offers, most of them are the mid-level exception.
“But two of three of those offers are more than that,” Lee said.
Lee said Ariza is getting more and more interest every day because, until recently, most teams believed the Los Angeles Lakers were not going to let him go.
