Artest to LAKERS!

RealGM: Basketball Wiretap Archives: Artest To Sign With Lakers
Quote:
Ron Artest has told Ken Berger of CBSSports.com that he will sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I'm definitely going to L.A. -- to sign, yeah," Artest said in a phone interview. "Lakers, Lakers, Lakers. I'm in L.A. right now."

Artest said he met with Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss Thursday and previously had spoken with Lakers coach Phil Jackson. He was en route to his financial manager's office, where he planned to huddle on the phone with his agent, David Bauman, to finalize details.

The parameters of the deal still need to be agreed upon, however.

"I don't really care about the money," Artest said. "I'll play there for nothing. ... L.A. was very interested in me, and they got me."
Shit's going down. REPEAT!

Ariza?? bye ):

Default Artest to the Lakers -> Ariza leaving

Artest says he's signing with Lakers

Shaq can have LeBron. Ron Artest says he'll take Kobe.

Artest, whose versatility and toughness have made him one of the most coveted and combustible players in the NBA, told CBSSports.com Thursday that he's signing with the Lakers.

"I'm definitely going to L.A. -- to sign, yeah," Artest said in a phone interview. "Lakers, Lakers, Lakers. I'm in L.A. right now."

Artest said he met with Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss Thursday and previously had spoken with Lakers coach Phil Jackson. He was en route to his financial manager's office, where he planned to huddle on the phone with his agent, David Bauman, to finalize details.

Artest's exuberance -- he spent the whole summer in L.A., including several appearances at Lakers home games during the NBA Finals -- got ahead of the process a bit. Other teams that made overtures for Artest -- including the Cavaliers -- have not yet been notified that Artest is signing with the Lakers. (Consider them notified.) Bauman has spoken with Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak, but parameters have not yet been agreed to. Still, it's pretty clear where Artest is going.

"I don't really care about the money," Artest said. "I'll play there for nothing. ... L.A. was very interested in me, and they got me."

Artest wants to win and now that Yao's out for the long-haul, there isn't going to be any winning going on in Houston anytime soon.

Because it means that the Lakers aren't going to sign Ariza, which means that it's likely between us and Portland. I hope we get him!

Well he could have signed with the Cavs, with the Celtics, with SA, with Dallas, with NO...

But not the Lakers. He hated Kobe and Kobe hated him until 10 minutes ago. And now they'll be 2 gays acting like childhood friends. Artest just lost any proud he could have of himself. In his body, I'd never feel happy winning 30 rings with kobe. The main part for him right now it was to win a ring and win kobe!

You make this sound very awkward. Like lovers of some sort.

Dude, it's an FA signing. You want to win now, join a team and take a paycut to win.
