Lakers News: Gilbert Arenas Works Out for Team

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, former NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas had a private workout in front of Los Angeles Lakers officials. There have been rumors centering around Arenas and the Lakers, and the Sunday workout clearly shows that the team is interested in the guard.

The Lakers’ back-court has had some problems so far this season, and adding a scorer like Arenas would give the coaching staff a reliable scorer to help Kobe. According to sources close to the situation, Arenas made a positive impression but it is unclear how aggressive the Lakers will be to signing him.

Arenas last played for the Orlando Magic, but his stint with the team did not go as planned. Arenas was dealing with knee issues and he was unable to return to his former state. However, he underwent a knee procedure similar to the one Kobe did in Germany, and it seems as though the injury will no longer be a major issue if the Lakers do indeed sign him.

    The Lakers Brass are not what they once were. They’re going to wait until someone else sign him. Just sign the guy. Gilbert would help the Lakers more than the press is saying.

    50% of old agent zero will be enough.

    if they are gonna sign arenas, i hope they sign jr smith (waive whoever they need) as well just in case the arenas experiment doesnt work out. i would much rather have the lakers sign jr smith and trade for sessions. those two players can definitely help out team. also we dont have to break up our core three just yet (even though it looks like we do)

    Before G-Lock started showing up, I would have been all for signing Arenas, just to give us that scoring punch off the bench. But if Arenas is just going to be bench scoring, I say we wait for Brooks instead, as a Blake-Goudelock bench tandem is not too shabby. If Arenas proves he can start, then I say we sign him. Then again, we are starting Derek Fisher, anybody would be an upgrade.

    there’s nothing to lose if LAKERS sign AGENT ZERO… we need a legitimate PG off the bench to help our backcourt.. He doesnt need to score 30 or more… for as long as he will be consistent off the bench, it will be a huge one for the LAKERS… try this season only and re-signed him next year if he played well this year…

    Bring Pau Gasol to Houston for either Kyle Lowry/Kevin Martin/Jonny Flynn and Luis Scola. Afterwards, bring Luis Scola to Memphis for Marc Gasol and Hasheem Thabeet.

    Kyle Lowry/Kevin Martin/Jonny Flynn
    Kobe Bryant
    Metta World Peace/Matt Barnes
    Marc Gasol

    its not got going to work Gilbert is not a team player, if he understands that this is Kobe’s team then sign him but if there’s going to be conflicts then pass on with the next one

    Arenas,,should not be hesitate to sign a contract in LA. because .. he is on of the top guys in NBA, and he is also a leader… probably a good tandem for him is to join to kobe.. and help him in offense and defense.. look at that.. he is also a clutch shooter… if kobe doubled team.. he can help the black mamba to take a shot…. and every one knows that,.. common people dont take any pride.. just be with the reality… if you want to get a title.just be with that,,. there is no reason to think of it.. you know why,, Miami heat.. is getting stronger and stronger,. and they received more winning streak right now.. they have big three all stars,, so what is that? therefore Gilbert Arenas should play right now to help Kobe and the whole Lakers team… 


    They will bring him of the the bench, which are bench needs the serious help since it is the worst bench in the league. Also they should sign J.R. Smith who recently was released from his China contract with Agent Zero and J.R of the bench that should raise are numbers big time!

  • Mesyaa

    lakes need him!

  • Ericadrian2004

    Wake up Mitch K!!!sign the guy for the remainder of the season!!There’s nothing to loose!

  • Eric A. of Boston

    How come teams like the Clippers and the Knicks had sign a good player like Kenyon Martin and J.R. Smith…LAKERS may need the service of EDDIE HOUSE much a better as a 3point shooter than J. KAPONO and a good ball handler!!! MITCH K.???and sign GILBERT ARENAS too!!!!
