According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, free agent point guard Gilbert Arenas will workout for the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday, who are looking for a backup point guard.
Said the report:
“I think Gilbert would be a good fit from the perspective that he can play both guard positions,” [Grizzlies coach] Hollins said. “He’s been a very talented offensive player his entire career. He’s a guy that played the passing lanes and got steals..I just thought that if that was a possibility to add another talented guy who could play backup point guard and backup 2 as well, why not take a look?”
Arenas last played with the Orlando Magic last season, where he played in 49 games and averaged 8 points per game.
Arenas has averaged 21.2 points per game over the course of his career and was a source of numerous off-the-court distractions during his time with the Washington Wizards.
Should the Grizzlies sign Arenas, or does he have too much baggage? Fire off in the comments below.
