It looks like Trevor Ariza could be heading back to L.A. as part of a three-team deal. The Lakers are reportedly looking to make with the Phoenix Suns for him once he’s eligible to be traded later this week.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the two teams are looking to reach an agreement with a third team that could take Lakers’ guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Ariza signed as a free agent this past season, which makes him eligible to be traded starting December 15.
The Rockets have also expressed interest in bringing back Ariza, who played in Houston for four straight seasons, including last year.
In the current season, Ariza is averaging 9.7 points per game, with 5.5 rebounds, on the other hand, Caldwell-Pope is averaging 8.5 points per game.
