HOUSTON (AP) - Ron Artest could be headed to Houston. Two people familiar with the negotiations tell The Associated Press the Rockets are close to an agreement to acquire Artest from the Sacramento Kings for guard Bobby Jackson and
another player, likely rookie forward Donte Greene.
The Houston Chronicle first reported details of the trade on its
Web site on Tuesday night.
The Kings confirmed that the teams had spoken about Artest.
The 6-foot-7, 248-pound Artest averaged 20.5 points last season,
his highest since 2004-05. He also grabbed 5.8 rebounds per game
for Sacramento last season.
