Re: Lakers/Rockets Artest for Ariza sign and trade
Well, the only way Rockets would do it is if they definitely plan on getting rid of T-Mac and if they know for sure that Yao is out for the season. I still cannot see them trading Battier to a team in the West. If they want to unload his contract, they would be best moving him to the East. Morrison's contract and Farmar are not worth giving away Battier. I am sure they can get a lot more value for Battier from other teams... I mean they already have Brooks, who is a better PG than Farmar with very similar playing-style. They don't need Farmar... They would rather get a backup PG that is a veteran.
