    Default Knicks sign Ariza

    NEW YORK, August 3, 2004 - New York Knickerbockers President of Basketball Operations Isiah Thomas announced today that rookie forward Trevor Ariza has been signed to a contract. As per club policy, terms of the deal are not announced.

    Ariza, 6-7, 194 pounds, was selected by the Knicks in the second round (43rd overall) in the 2004 NBA Draft as an early entry selection after playing one season at UCLA. The Miami, FL-native earned All-PAC 10 Freshman Team honors after averaging 11.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 25 games.

    Participating in New York’s entry in July’s Summer Pro League in Long Beach, CA, Ariza averaged 14.0 points, 6.8 rebounds and 34.0 minutes in four starts.

    this is the second best news of the day, aside from the Crawford trade. In a few years, Ariza and Sweetney will be one of the most powerful young frontcourts in the East. now all we need is a young, strong center.. Until then, hopefully Dampier will do it for us.

    this guy is such a surprize for the knicks. everybody thought the draft was soo bad but look we get a young player who is probably ganna develop into something big but for now he just strengthens our bench.

    i feel bad for him. he did good last season and now he is probably not going to be resigned. maybe the knicks can make room for him. he can be a good player off the bench.

    Maybe with the finalyzation of the Crawford trade and all the player movements the Knicks roster will make space for Demarr to come back next season too, who knows.....Does anyone know anything about Deon Clark? Did he get signed yet? Could the Knicks get him?

    I read that New Orleans is very interested in Demarr Johnson because of Mashburns injuries. They supposedly are trying to aquire him from the knicks. I am not sure what they will offer, but its nice to know he has some value if the Knicks cannot fit him in.

    i think trevor might be one good player coming from the bench.

    he proved that in the summer leagues...
