"Bet your house" on Artest opting out

INDIANAPOLIS - Although it was assumed by most that Kings small forward Ron Artest would choose to become a free agent after this season, he said for the first time on Saturday that he would likely exercise the early termination option in his contract just as expected.
"You know, I guess everybody assumes (he's goint to opt out)," he said. "If you’re going to bet your house on it, then bet that I’m going to opt out. But that time will come later. We’ll see what happens."
Artest is earning $7.4 million this season and would earn the same salary next season if he didn't opt out. - Sam Amick
