So with Ron Artest reportedly wanting out and Mitch Kupchak reportedly shopping for someone to bring to the team seeking a 3-peat, I think this gives the Rockets an oppurtunity to get a good center. What Artest brings most to the Lakers is his great defense and perimeter shooting. The Rockets, in my opinion, have a logjam at the SF position and giving up Battier to the Lakers would be fine if we could get a good center.
The Lakers get an experienced, really good defender with Shane Battier and they probably wouldn't mind giving Artest up for him
We could let Budinger's and T-Will's potential grow and talented swingman Courtney Lee will probably get more minutes.
We give up Brooks and Battier for Demarcus Cousins.
Sacremento get's alot in this deal and I think they would pull the trigger on this one.
I honestly like Aaron more than Lowry but we really need a center.
What do y'all think?
