Sources close to NBC Sports Washington indicate that the Wizards plan to keep Trevor Ariza for the remainder of the season, despite the impact of John Wall’s season-ending heel surgery.
Ariza has played very well since arriving to DC averaging 14.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists in his first 16 games. The Lakers and Pelicans are said to be the two teams with an interest in the veteran forward, but with the Wizards having won four out of the last five games, the Eastern Conference playoffs don’t seem like a reach anymore for Washington.
