Chandler is more suited to be a 1st option player, as Ariza can't create his own shot nearly as well as Chandler.
Both are explosive finishers, Ariza is a better three point shooter, Chandler better at creating off the dribble, both great slashers, both are great defenders.
Depends on the need, with Kobe and Gasol, you wouldn't need infact you'd prefer for Ariza to expend the majority of his energy on defense while Chandler is needed to score a whole lot more and thus is a better fit for the Knicks.
And considering Chandler's second season was practically his rookie season, (Isiah Thomas didn't like to play him much...) with ~600 minutes the first season versus ~3000 minutes the next, Chandler has a ton of upside.

No acting here!
i'd take ariza, simply because he's a better on the ball defender, off the ball defender and a better 3 point shooter
chandler's the better rebounder and scoring option, but if i'm asking either to be a major scoring option, my team is already in trouble
both are relatively equal in value though
Props to Mane for the sig.

Right now, Trevor Ariza is definitely the better player and has helped the Lakers reach the finals. However, like in 1 or 2 years from now, this won't be a comparison. I am expecting Wilson Chandler to become a much better player and should be a set starter coming into the season. I agree with those you mentioned him as being a more complete player than Ariza.
I agree. ^ Very good post.
Toronto Raptors ~ Miami Heat ~ Los Angeles Lakers
This is a close one but I go with Ariza.
Ariza is a better 3 pt shooter, and perimeter defender. Also good at gambles and stealing in the passing lane.
Wilson is more along the lines of a Shawn Marion, can do everything except get assist.
I'll say Ariza as of now, and Wilson in the next 2 years. Hard to comptete with someone in the semi finals and playing with Kobe.
I would pick Ariza but for the Heat I would pick Chandler because he could create his own shot and it gives us another scoring option
chandler will be alot better than ariza in the future
