Ron Artest Downplays Trade Rumors

Both Ron and his agent came out and publicly denied the media rumor that he wants out of Los Angeles. Make of that what you will. From the OC Register: “Lakers forward Ron Artest said Wednesday that he is not seeking a trade, calling untrue an online report that stated he wanted out of L.A. ‘I didn’t read it,’ Artest said after his extra shooting session at the Lakers’ training facility in El Segundo. ‘We  lost a couple of games and papers are probably writing a bunch of stories that aren’t true.’ But are you looking to be traded? ‘No, definitely not,’ he said. ‘I feel good every day. We’ve got a chance to win multiple championships here…trying to work towards another banner … I’m not frustrated, no matter what happens out there. It’s part of the game.’”

    If i had to put my money on it, id say the lakers don’t make a move before the deadline. I don’t necessarily think that its smart on there part but its my prediction. I think this was AKITA by Kupchak.

    When your going for a threepeat, you leave the roster exactly the same.. it’s worked up until now why change it. I’m not only talking about Ron here.
