Ariza averaged 12.8 points, 2.4 three-pointers, 5.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.2 blocks, and 1.9 steals in 36 minutes per game through 82 games in 2014-15.

At 29 years old, the 11-year NBA veteran, who is under team control until 2017-18, posted career highs in steals, games played, minutes, free throw percentage, and three-pointers made. While not terribly efficient, Ariza (40% FG, 35% 3Pt, 85% FT), who improved his outside game with Washington, has capitalized in Houston (2.4 three-pointers) with players like Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, and Josh Smith clogging the lane. After Houston failed to re-sign Chandler Parsons, Ariza was signed to be the starting small forward and should continue to fill a similar role next season.
