According to ESPN, Ron Artest has nixed the deal that would have sent him to the Kings for Peja Stojakovic.

Artest in the Indianapolis Star:

"I just want to meet with team officials of whichever team I'm headed to," he said. "I want to play, but I'm following the rules I have to follow. If I have to sit out, I sit out the season."

The saga continues...

Apparently, Ron Ron is being summoned to a meeting Wednesday morning with Larry Bird and Donnie Walsh in hopes of finalizing the deal. Let's hope he's gone.
