Artest Trade Revisted

Back when it went down, quite a few people complained about what Petrie got in return for for Ron-Ron. I felt it was about as good as we could get, but quite a few people felt we should have gotten more, likening it to the Bibby trade (which was pretty bad in retrospect).

Now, however, I think this move deserves a second look.

Houston rented Artest for a playoff run, and then let him go for nothing. They swung for the fences and missed, so the trade from their end can't be considered a success. 

We received 2 late first rounders for Ron-Ron and an expiring contract. Donte was one of those, and I don't think he will amount to much, but Omri is making the deal look pretty good. I believe he could become a top flight starter at the 3 (from what I have read/heard). The deal was risky because late firsts can be a crapshoot.; however, Petrie is at his best evaluating talent, so I think this was a pretty good move.

It is still too early to tell, but I am beginning to think we got the better end of this one, and it could end up being a potentiel steal if Omri continues to develop.
