Free-agent forward Ron Artest says he's leaving the Houston Rockets to join the Los Angeles Lakers.

In a text message to ESPN.com on Thursday night, Artest wrote: "I am happy to say I am goin' to L.A."

ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard reports that Artest and the Lakers have reached a verbal agreement on what is believed to be a three-year contract worth an estimated $18 million. Wednesday is the first day free agents are permitted to sign new deals.

Artest's decision was first reported by CBSSports.com. The mercurial swingman was initially courted by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In his text message, Artest said that he met Thursday with Lakers owner Jerry Buss and had spoken to coach Phil Jackson about the move to Los Angeles, where Artest has been spending his offseasons.

Artest's forthcoming arrival strongly suggests that unrestricted free agent Trevor Ariza -- who played such a pivotal run in the Lakers' championship run -- is bound to leave the team. Broussard reported Wednesday that, according to sources with knowledge of the negotiations, Ariza was likely to leave the Lakers for a new team because L.A. was reluctant to sign him to a contract starting above the league's $5.6 million mid-level exception, even after Ariza's postseason success.

Ariza has been courted by numerous teams, including Cleveland, and met Thursday in Las Vegas with Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey to possibly swap spots with Artest.

Pretty much...

I'm still in awe at how this jackass was able to run his own agent out of his hometown.

f**king retard.

Yep I agree. Losing gortat would be huge, and I think hedo caused more matchup problems for defenders with his ability to get other players involved. Vince has a tendecy to starting chunking it up at times and that to me would be a huge concern. I mean don't get me wrong he can get you 30 on any given night, but can he get others involved like hedo is the bigger question.
yea... orlando is a team that swings to both extremes constantly. a lot of times it seems like if one person is off, then the whole team gets out of rhythm and vice versa. hedo has that ability to get the whole team involved even when he's off by opening shots for his teammates, but streakiness can make or break a season which is exactly what we saw in the playoffs. more moves need to be made though considering what teams in our conference are trying to do. i really hope they can talk sheed into coming down here, thats a scorer we can use and another defensive presence that we need. move lewis to the 3, sheed at the 4, vc at the 2, nelson at point, that would be GREAT!

its a f**king steal we got him short term for a good price. Mitch is a genius. Now the Lakers need to put all their effort into getting Odom signed.

Have you ever seen hedo play. He chucks shot worst than vince. And he is highly turnover prone and lacks B-ball IQ. Dude is a decent passer and is average at creating his own shot but he was very very inconsistent. Hedo is basically a poor man Lamar odom except lamar is more consistent, and we dont even know which Lamar odom shows up in game to game.

artest fell off lol lakers stupid not to resign ariza watch artest and kobe not get to the 2nd round :greetings10:
f**kouttahere

you know what is funny about that? wasn't Artest s**tting on Ariza for the most part of that series between Lakers and Rockets? i really don't remember Ariza even playing well in that series

besides Artest is a better on-ball defender, stronger, better scorer because he can create his own shot, tougher he will help Lakers more than Ariza did and plus he can score in that low-post and he have way more to his game than Ariza did, Lakers struggle with teams that have good sf, Melo was cooking L.A. aswell, them days are gone
