Some NBA players are looking to take their talents overseas during the NBA lockout. Ron Artest is looking to bring his talent to the dance floor.
TMZ reported Wednesday that Artest has been in talks with the hit ABC show Dancing With the Stars and is strongly considering joining the competition next season.
The television show is reportedly scheduled to end in November, while the NBA season is “scheduled” to begin in October. Shows producers are apparently so desperate for big names, though, that they won’t require competitors to rehearse for a minimum amount of time. This, of course, won’t matter if there is a work-stoppage.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward won last season’s DWTS title.
