Artest wants to be a Knick


Ron Artest said he would approve getting dealt to his hometown team and thinks he can reverse the Knicks‘ catastrophic situation. The Knicks were hotly interested in Artest over the summer, with coach Isiah Thomas believing Artest could have been the final piece to the puzzle to compete for the Eastern title. Artest can opt out of his contract after the season, leaving $8.5 million on the table. Thomas is one of the few who wants to coach Artest. And the Knicks can offer him a long-term, mid-level contract for $31 million.
