Lakers Rumors: Los Angeles Reportedly Interested in Gilbert Arenas

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

There’s no question the Los Angeles Lakers have had some trouble this season scoring from behind the three-point line. Currently the team is last in the Western Conference in three-point shooting, even after a 50 percent effort in their last game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.

Now there’s a rumor that the Lakers might be looking to solve some of their three-point woes by bringing in free agent guard Gilbert Arenas. This may come as a surprise for many, as Arenas hasn’t been a very reliable player over the past few seasons. Injuries have derailed his career to some extent, and he currently is an unsigned free agent.

Still, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld it seems that the Lakers might be considering Arenas as a free agent signing.

“The Los Angeles Lakers have expressed interest in Gilbert Arenas, according to sources close to the situation. The 30-year-old is an unrestricted free agent after being amnestied by the Orlando Magic last month. No signing is imminent, but the Lakers have reached out to the veteran point guard.”

Arenas might be a bit of a gamble for the Lakers, as his locker room issues have been well documented in the past. Still, he may be able to provide Los Angeles with some help shooting from beyond the arc, where the team has undoubtedly struggled.

    I love it!!! Bring Agent 0 to LA…. the man respects Kobe’s game a lot, and he took inspiration from Kobe during his magical mr. buzzer beater season. This might be the momentum needed right now

    • Chrisc

      KOBE hates him dude, and Gilbert feels the same about KB24.

      • Barbara White


        KOBE + $$$$ =  PLAYERS.

      • Poimen1

        At this point in Laker life, we will have to forget personalities and do what may be beneficial for the team and right now we need a point guard and a kobe back up and the best that we can do with the Vet-minimum is Arenas.

        • Poimen1

          Anyone have the latest on the Arenas signing? I am a bit anxious to find out because we need some positive news to lift spirits after last night disappointing performance. 

  • chetta world peace

    we have enough veterans, lets go after some youthful talent!!

  • Johndoe

    What are the lakers thinking? We need young legs! Gilbert doesn’t believe in world peace

  • Marty Susman

    I could care less who they bring this season since it matters less… The real season begins next year when we HOPE to see a whole new team with everyone over 26 gone except Kobe.

  • Tooneykidd

    his perfect , him coming off the bench and helping out the second unit

  • Jaydogg08

    I hate hearing all these rumors.  Lakers need to prove and it and sign somebody or trade for someone please.  I would rather have Arenas then Walton.  Come on Lakers make a trade for D will already.

  • Vincent Hubbard

    I say sign him now. They waiting too long when they could have got nate robinson at a steal! so lets no mess this up

  • Ernest Smalls

    Bring back Lamar !!!

  • Joyce

    Hope it’s nothing but a rumor. Bring Lamar back. Better yet bring Phil and Lamar back.

  • Tvake817

    Y didn’t we take a PG from Dallas for odom….. SMS we should’ve took beaubois or some kinda guard….. Still doesn’t make sense but I like Goudelouck tho!!!!!!!

  • Lisa Santiago-Weber

    Gilbert Arenas would be great! Get him now.

    • Poimen1

      Lisa, I agree with you and with every loss to teams we should be beating, makes it more so necessary to get Arenas at least he can play the 1 and the 2 and his contract is short term for the vet minimum. 

  • Poimen1

    I think this is a good short term move by the lakers, if it does not pan out he will not be resigned after the season but we need a combo type guard to run the point ang to back up Kobe at shooting guard.

    • Poimen1

      My take on the Arenas issue is simple he is at least better than what we have called point guards save probably Steve Blake and as I said before it is for the Vet minimum and a short term contract.

  • Jef_alexhao

    i hope it will help LAKERS behind the arc… GO Lakers!

  • LakerLyle

    WHAT THE “F”! They can’t win even against Milwaukee?!? What kind of Lakers do we have right now really?!? The Bucks are a weak team! C’mon LAKERS! Is this how weak you are?!? What kind of an organization are you?!? You can’t even defeat a weak team, which means you’re weaker! I’ve always been a fanatic of the Lakers but I’m very disappointed! VERY MUCH DISAPPOINTED!

  • Bequi24

    Sign him for rest of season he could help the bench .he should cause any distraction if he want to play for any team next year or his career will be over.media said same about world peace an they were wrong all he did is help get some jewelry woooooo….. Agent 0 is coming home he won’t blow this one he grow up a laker fan
