Suns sign Ariza to one-year contract

Trevor Ariza has agreed to a one-year contract with the Suns.

The Phoenix Suns have made their first splash into the free-agent frenzy, having agreed to a contract with forward Trevor Ariza, according to a report.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports Ariza is leaving the Houston Rockets to sign a one-year, $15-million contract with Phoenix.

The 33-year-old, 14-year NBA veteran averaged 11.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.5 steals in 33.9 minutes in 67 games (all starts) for the Rockets last season.

The 6-foot-8, 215-pound UCLA product shot 41.2 percent from the field last season for Houston, including 36.8 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.

Phoenix will be the sixth team Ariza suits up for, having done so for Houston twice.
