According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Gilbert Arenas has narrowed his choice of teams to 4, after clearing waivers today. With the Lakers having a glaring hole at the point guard spot & Baron Davis heading to the Knicks, the Southern California native have put the purple and gold at the top of his list along with Miami, the New York Knicks and my favorite – any team that trades for Dwight Howard.
Does that double the chances of the Lakers getting the Hibachi man himself?
Stein reports that the Lakers have given the impression that their hesitant to pull the trigger (oops, that just came out) on Arenas, as it’s a very delicate time with Lamar’s exit, Pau’s uncertainty and now, Kobe’s pending divorce.
Before all of you Lakers fans clamor for Arenas to return home, please remember that he has had multiple knee surgeries, played in less than 50% of possible games since signing that $111M contract and has been a relative disappointment with the Orlando Magic.
But I know you all remember this 60 pt game vs. the Lakers, which is making you go “why not?”
