All along, Rockets GM Daryl Morey kept promising that something was in the works in Houston. He’s finally delivered on that, bringing in Ron Artest in exchange for Bobby Jackson, the Rockets No. 1 pick next season and another player to be named later. The early rumors are that the unnamed player is wing Donte Greene.

With Artest in the fold, the Rockets could have one of the most tenacious perimeter defending tandems along with Shane Battier. Could the Rockets feasibly put T-Mac, Battier and Artest on the floor at the same time late in games?

Because of contract considerations, the trade will not be announced until Aug. 14, though that would indicate the deal could include Rockets’ first round draft pick Donte’ Greene. Greene is not permitted to be traded until then, one month from when he signed with the Rockets.

How do you think Ron-Ron will fit in in Houston?
