Ron Artest has been looking to make extra money just in case there’s an NBA lockout next season.

According to TMZ, Mr. Meta World Peace is currently in talks with Dancing With the Stars and is seriously thinking about competing.

No official announcement has been made, but Artest and DWTS producers have been in discussions about a possible deal. TMZ’s sources say Ron is excited about the prospect.

One issue – DWTS won’t end until November and basketball season typically starts in October. So, if the lockout ends early, Ron could be in quite the situation.

DWTS has never had non-retired NBA ballers on the show.
