The 10 biggest moves of the summer

2. Not exactly the Kings' ransom

The Sacramento Kings traded Ron Artest to the Houston Rockets for the draft rights to Donte Green, Bobby Jackson, their 2009 No. 1 draft choice and cash. The mercurial Artest now gives the Rockets a superior defender and very good offensive player to go along with the combination of Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming ... almost instantly making the Rockets solid contenders to win the Western Conference in 2009. Artest has a history of playing exceptionally well for his first season with a new team until he goes off the deep end, and there was little reason for the Kings to hang on to him for another year when he'll be a free agent next summer. That said, it's even more incentive for him to raise him game and stay focused for the coming season as the Rockets get comfortable with each other. On the other hand, this was a team that won 22 consecutive games last season the last 10 without Yao reflecting what great chemistry they had. In that respect, Artest may very well be nitroglycerine.

A link to the actual article your quoting from wouldn't go astray. Trawling through FoxSports is always annoying.
