Eastern Notes: Ariza, Stephenson, Humphries

Marcin Gortat badly wants to see Trevor Ariza return to the Wizards, writes Michael Lee of the Washington Post. “Trevor is a big part of our success, and we’d like to have him back,” Gortat said. “I understand at the end of the day, it’s a business and he has to make the right decision for him and for his family. But we love him, we want him back and I believe that [GM] Ernie [Grunfeld] and [senior VP of basketball operations] Tommy Sheppard is going to do the right thing.” More from the East..

  • Some Pacers fans are nervous about the impasse in discussions between Lance Stephenson and Indiana, but Candace Buckner of the Indy Star implores fans to be patient and not panic.
  • In addition to the previously reported Heat and Celtics, the Wizards and Hornets are also interested in big man Kris Humphries, tweets Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report.
  • There’s no denying that he’s talented, but there’s a lot to consider when weighing Stephenson.  David Nurse of HoopsHype looks at the pros and cons of the frustrating Pacers talent.
  • Re-signing Kyle Lowry was one of the final pieces of the puzzle for the Raptors, opines Jonathan Tjarks of RealGM.  With Lowry under contract for the next four years, Toronto has every member of their starting five locked up for the forseeable future.

No one has made any peep about interest in Stephenson outside of the Pacers…

Stephenson isn’t going anywhere. I don’t blame him going to look around see anyone give him a big time contract. In the end he’s going to take the Pacers offer

Even as a Pacers fan I’m fine with Stephenson leaving. He just reeks of the problems we’ve had in the past, Shawne Williams, O’Neal, Tinsley, etc.

Stephenson is becoming a really good player, and I would like to have him back, but only if someone teaches him to be more level headed, and teaches him not to try to do too much and turn the ball over 20 out of 22 times. I’d take him back if he turned the ball over less and didn’t make stupid decisions many times.
