Default Re: Lakers/Rockets Artest for Ariza sign and trade

Here is the link, though it doesn't appear to have happened now that Artest has signed.

Trevor Ariza has not been moved. He and his agent on Monday bought their airline tickets to Houston. The physical is scheduled for Wednesday morning, the press conference for Wednesday afternoon. Ariza will hold up his red jersey for the cameras, having chosen the Rockets over better teams and sticking to his commitment. He has not, however, been the only one with the cell phone pressed to his ear. The Rockets have worked on ways to get Ariza and keep their mid-level exception. That would seem to mean coming together with the Lakers on a sign-and-trade exchange, with Ron Artest going to LA for the same money. There are apparently other ways.
