EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP)—Ron Artest(notes) has signed with the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers, the team he says he wanted to join for years.

Artest, who played for the Houston Rockets last season, received a five-year deal worth about $33 million, according to his agent, David Bauman.

Seated next to Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak, Artest professed that he has wanted to be a Laker for several years, but the timing was never right.

He agreed to a deal last week, but couldn’t sign it until Wednesday. The Lakers also re-signed guard Shannon Brown(notes).

They're reporting it as 5 yr 33 mil. I've heard both, so does anyone know for sure if its the 3 year 18 mil deal or the 5 yr 33 mil deal that he actually signed?

Damn Artest... I'm guessing he wants to retire a Laker. Good for us, good for him.

Yea exactly. He also said, being a Laker and having that on his resume was more important than how much money was being thrown around on the business spectrum + the strong tradition we have here in LA.

And I don't see why he'd lie about that, since at this stage of his career it's not really about the money, it's more about creating a place in NBA history, winning a ring, and having more opportunities after he retires, and there is no better place to get some connects than in LA.

on the other side of that is artest never really had a big payday. artest is just a regular dude who thinks like a regular person. not some greeedy ahole just trying to make a trillion dollars. i respect him for that.
