How Ron would fit the Clips

I think Ron Artest, deep down, would be thrilled with a trade to the Clippers.

I'm even more convinced that the Kings have realized, rather suddenly, that they had better trade Artest as soon as possible if they hope to get back something of value -- to L.A. or wherever.

I'm not quite sure why the Clips believe their honeymoon with Artest would last any longer than it did for Sacramento, but they're apparently giving serious consideration to reviving the deal that was nearly consummated with Indiana in January 2005: Corey Maggette for Artest.
