Kendrick DavisCorrespondent IJuly 3, 2009

On the same day that the Lakers lose Trevor Ariza to Houston, well let's say they returned the favor. On SportsCenter, Ron Artest says he reached a verbal agreement for a three-year deal with the Lakers. Artest played one year for the Rockets and now joins Kobe Bryant who he was talking trash during a game and almost got into it in the playoffs. Before the deal was made official, the Cavaliers also expressed interest in Artest.

This year's acquistions are heating up and it will continue.
