Re: BREAKING NEWS: Artest expect to sign with the Lakers (3 yr/18 mil)
I LOVE this move. yes I would have rather kept Ariza because of age, mentality, and we KNOW that he fits but we weren't gonna keep him at the price he is asking so WELCOME Ron. Artest adds a lot of good things to this team, he was a 40% shooter from three last with most being contested (he will have much better looks here), still a great tough defender who will not get pushed around, can play in the post, and only comes for 6 mil/yr for a three year span.
This also means Phil is staying for sure.
Cant wait for next season
