That's why, I think the same thing can happen for Artest too. And Artest can realize his threats as we know.
The more and most important, all the under salary teams are in tanking or re-building mode. None of that teams will accept a guy like Artest.
By the way I've a question. Let's assume that Utah joined auction and won it. After that can they trade him to another team? For example to Spurs in exchange of Patty Mills and a conditional draft pick?
You're right, but I'm pretty sure Billups had more influence than Artest Does now though.
