With the trade deadline approaching, the Lakers and Mitch Kupchak are keeping their options open. This leaves a feeling of uneasiness for the current Lakers, specifically Ron Artest who has a lot of speculation surrounding his current status.
Artest has been with the Lakers since LA acquired him in a trade two seasons ago which sent Trevor Ariza to the Rockets. Since then, Ron has won a championship with the Lakers and been nothing but a key addition to the Laker family.
Artest is at a career low in points and rebounds, and the Lakers are concerned. With a lot that's changed in the NBA since a season ago as far as teams getting younger and combining with superstars, Artest's 11-year old career and current contract scare the Lakers a bit.
If they were to disperse the 32-year-old to another team, who would it be? Let's take a look at some options for teams that would love to land Ron Ron.
