I think we do this (if we can).

Make this Sacramento trade. Artest for Sura's contract, Kirk Snyder, and #26.

Re-sign Chuck Hayes and Dikembe Mutombo. Use the MLE on Melvin Ely and Brian Skinner (or Chris Mihm). Trade Rafer for anything. Hell, trade Rafer for Rosie O'Donnell at this point.

That gives us:

PG - James/Spanoulis/Lucas III
SG - McGrady/Wells
SF - Artest/Battier/Reed
PF - Ely/Hayes/Novak
C - Yao/Skinner/Mutombo

I left Luther Head out because I'm assuming he gets traded this summer as well. Guys like Justin Reed and John Lucas III might be cut to make room for players that we might get for Rafer and/or Luther.

If we do, it's not to make the contracts work. They work as is. But I haven't heard or read anything claiming that Bill would be involved.........

One possible destination for Ron Artest this summer? Houston, to be reunited with his former coach Rick Adelman.

I'm told the Rockets have been quietly putting out feelers about Artest, and the price might be right. I hear it would cost the Rockets Bob Sura (he has only $1 million in salary protection next year), Kirk Snyder, Vasilis Spanoulis and this year's first-round draft pick.

With Artest entering a player option year on his contract in the summer of 2008, it may be time to take the risk.

Surely that can't be all we have to give up. I mean, if so, why is this not done yet?

I'm a part time Rockets fan and my answer is conditional:

Yes, if it means Bonzi isn't coming back and playing hard
No, if Bonzi is back

But if Bonzi is coming back and playing hard and they get Artest anyway, I wouldn't be too mad.

So mostly yes.

Wasn't this just a rumor? I mean, this what it takes to match salaries to get Artest, but i don't think this was a full proposal from the Kings.

My reasoning sucks? What are they going to do? Have Battier or Artest come off the bench? Waste. They need Mike James... who they got. Now they need a better PF. Not Artest.

battier would play SF and Artest would play PF. duh.
