Ron Artest Discussing Deal to Join Dancing With the Stars

According to TMZ Lakers forward Ron Artest is in discussions with ABC to join the new season of Dancing with the Stars.

Nothing’s official yet — but sources tell us, both Artest and “Dancing” producers have been in touch to hash out a possible deal … and Ron’s pretty excited about the prospect. But here’s the catch — “Dancing” won’t end ’til November and basketball season typically starts in October … which means if the lockout ends early, Ron could be S.O.L. That said, Ron could theoretically handle both commitments simultaneously.

The issue would be the NBA lockout, which will obviously determine whether or not Artest has a day job during the fall. If the league does reach a new CBA in time to start the NBA season on time Artest may have to sit this out.

Regardless, Artest on Dancing with the Stars would be entertaining to say the least. Whether or not he can actually dance is yet to be seen.
