The NBA players association is considering an appeal of the seven-game suspensions given to Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson for legal issues. Both players were suspended without pay by the league Saturday, and are scheduled to miss the first seven games of next season. Artest would lose a little more than $470,000 in salary, about $50,000 more than Jackson. Jackson released a statement through the Golden State Warriors saying he accepted his suspension.

The Houston Rockets are close to an agreement to acquire Ron Artest from the Sacramento Kings, two people familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press. The Rockets will give up guard Bobby Jackson, who played for the Kings from 2000 to '05, and another player - likely rookie forward Donte Greene, according to two NBA people who confirmed the deal. Artest's long-anticipated move out of Sacramento probably can't be announced yet because Greene, acquired by the Rockets on draft night last month, signed a contract with Houston on July 14. A player can't be traded within 30 days of signing a contract, according to league rules.
