   2017 NBA Manifesto

Trevor Ariza
SF, 6’8, 215lbs, 31 years old, 13 years of experience

Finally getting some offensive help on the wing didn't bolster his own individual scoring efficiency any, yet the offensive numbers he puts up as a fourth option are far better than they were as a second or third option, despite being pretty much exactly the same. (If that makes sense.) He did however seem fresher-legged defensively, even if the metrics do not capture that especially will. On a team-friendly contract that will soon need renewing, all the while getting older, Ariza should be considered trade bait, unless he was partial to a particularly team-friendly extension.

Player Plan: One year and $7,420,912 remaining. As he declines, he may be able to be re-signed for a smaller deal - however, given his already team-friendly contract and decent play on both ends, he also may have value on the market as well as to his team.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
