Guard Gilbert Arenas was once one of the most exciting scorers in the NBA. At the end of a fantastic stay with the Washington Wizards, injuries ruined his career. He had a brief stint with the Orlando Magic and even smaller stay with the Memphis Grizzlies, but just couldn’t play at a high level any more.
After attempting a comeback last season, no one signed Arenas and he was forced to spend time playing in China. Now, Arenas is attempting another comeback. According to Alex Kennedy of Hoops World, Arenas has been training in both Las Vegas and Los Angeles and is “looking very good.”
Kennedy’s sources tell him Arenas could be invited to training camp by the Los Angeles Clippers.
Obviously, this would be perfect for Arenas. He wouldn’t be asked to do much with superstar Chris Paul and a solid backup in Darren Collison already playing point guard. Arenas could play spot minutes and possibly be a spot-up shooter while freshly acquired guard J.J. Redick is getting a breather.
Over his 11-year NBA career, Arenas has averaged 20.7 points, 5.3 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game. “Agent Zero” has shot 42.1% from the field, 35.1% from beyond the arc and 80.3% from the charity stripe.
