Ron Artest has some very good reasons to consider playing in one of the weaker European basketball leagues.

The Lakers star who could soon be known as Metta World Peace, is considering on offer from the Cheshire Jets, who play in what Artest's agent called "the 10th or 12th best league in Europe."

Pete Hawkins, an executive with the Euro Jets, pointed out to the Chester Chronicle they have an attractive package to seduce Artest across the pond.

Cheshire plays less than half the number of games played in the NBA, meaning Artest will have more free time to make movies and music.

The Jets are getting an assist from former player-coach Billy Singleton, who coached Artest's son.

Ron-Ron has already changed his Twitter photo to depict Cheshire's jersey.
