1 Game Suspension, Fine, What?

Talking about this elbow Trevor Ariza attempted to throw at Demar Derozan:

I initially thought he should only get a fine. But after hearing what The Basketball Jones had to say about it, I agree with them, he should get a game. Their point in this episode was ellaborated in a previous episode, but basically, they feel that even if the impact is weaker in some cases, it's the intent that should be looked at. Ariza didn't hit Derozan, but had he hit him, it would have been real evident. He intended to hurt him and that's doesn't jive in today's NBA.

What do you think about this situation? How should Ariza be dealt with?
