The Houston Rockets have reached an agreement to acquire forward Ron Artest from the Sacramento Kings, the Houston Chronicle is reporting.
The Rockets will give up guard Bobby Jackson, a No. 1 draft pick next season and another player that the individual with knowledge of the trade could not name.
It is believed that rookie Donte Greene is included in the deal, which will prevent the deal from going through until August 14, when Greene is able to be dealt.
There could also be other players involved to make the money match but none that the Rockets would plan to keep. The Rockets will also send the Kings cash in excess of $1 million.
Wow....this ain't that bad for either teams.
Sacramento gets a promising lottery talent in Greene to fill in Ron's spot.
a legit PG in Jackson.
Rockets get their guy that can take them to the next level.
Thats basically a top 3 starting 5 in the NBA.
