HoopsHype Trevor Ariza rumors

July 11, 2014 Updates

It doesn't appear that the Wizards are making any moves Friday, CSNWashington.com has learned, even after the flurry that began with LeBron James' decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. As reported here previously, James wouldn't have a major impact on their chances of keeping Trevor Ariza. All along, the Wizards have been looking at Carmelo Anthony and a new piece to the puzzle -- Chandler Parsons of the Houston Rockets. CSNWashington.com

According to an NBA front office executive, Ariza is seeking a salary comparable to the four-year, $48 million deal that Andre Iguodala received last season. CBS Sports is reporting that he wants a deal starting between $9 million and $11 million. Washington Post

Harrington maintains an offseason home in Los Angeles and has spent some time this summer with fellow free agent Trevor Ariza, whom the Wizards want to take back but at the right price. Ariza has drawn interest from a handful of teams and is reportedly seeking a salary in the $9 million to $11 million range. Harrington was with Ariza for his low key 29th birthday celebration on June 30 and again on the first day of the free agent negotiating period. “He got to take care of himself and take care of his family at the end of the day,” Harrington said. “This is his last big deal, essentially, so that’s how he has to look at it. He has to get as much security as he can. We don’t talk details but he wants to be here. I think that’s the one thing Washington has over other people is he’s comfortable here. He like what he’s building here. Now it’s just a matter of him coming to terms.” Washington Post

“He knew it was part of the process. He knew it was part of the process,” Harrington said. “He knew had to wait for Carmelo and Bron to sign before him and Deng, and all those guys, that second tier. So he’s patient. He’s not worried about it. Everybody can’t sign until Thursday anyway. Once everybody gets into the camp, he’ll be one of those top guys after that.” Washington Post
