The Lakers officially sign Ron Artest and Shannon Brown

July 7, 2009 | 10:45 pm

UPDATE: The LAT's Broderick Turner has more details here.  Artest gets 3/$18 mil, but can choose to extend for two more years to bring the full value to just under $34 million.  Brown gets the bi-annual exception.  Two years, $4.2 million, with the second year being a player option.  BK

Got an email from the Lakers Media Relations Dept. that pen and paper were united for both Ron Artest and Shannon Brown.  We've officially entered "no give backs" territory.  Not that any hitch was expected, but it's always nice to know the proceedings went down without one.

Some happy news to momentarily distract you from sweating LO's situation.

As you were.
