    Artest traded to Houston!

    I love you Morey!

    In what had been a quiet offseason, the Rockets are about to make a lot of noise.

    In a stunning move designed to push the Rockets from solid playoff team toward legitimate NBA contenders, the Rockets reached agreement Tuesday with the Sacramento Kings to acquire gifted but controversial forward Ron Artest, according to an NBA executive with knowledge of the deal.

    The Rockets will give up guard Bobby Jackson, a No. 1 draft pick next season and another player that the individual with knowledge of the trade could not name. Rockets general manager Daryl Morey could not be immediately reached for comment.

    Because of contract considerations, the trade will not be announced until Aug. 14, though that would indicate the deal could include Rockets’ first round draft pick Donte’ Green. Green is not permitted to be traded until then, one month from when he signed with the Rockets.

    There could also be other players involved to make the money match but none that the Rockets would plan to keep. The Rockets will also send the Kings cash in excess of $1 million.

    Artest, 28, is considered one of the NBA’s most unpredictable characters and was the central figure in a 2004-05 brawl with fans in Auburn Hills, Mich. He is also considered among the league’s toughest lock-down defenders and sometimes, an unstoppable offensive force.

    Great news for Houston!
    If we're all such great coaches why do we recruit so hard? You need players.

    Good trade for Houston Artest gives them another option especially with the injuries the Rockets have been going through.

    Donte Green might be included in the deal.

    Well unless Battier is involved in the trade, Im guessing him or Artest will be off the bench. Regardless, good deal for the Rox.
