Gilbert Arenas Works Out for Lakers, Reports He Looked Explosive
I am not ready to hop on the Agent Zero bandwagon just yet.
He is still Gilbert Arenas, but it is a good sign that he has kept himself in shape while not playing. Curious though if all these reports are true and Kobe is basically begging for him, what is the hold up with the Lakers signing him?
While the Los Angeles Lakers were in Toronto on Sunday finishing off their six-game road trip, Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak was holding a private workout for free agent guard Gilbert Arenas, according to multiple sources.
Arenas, who turned 30 last month, looked “slimmed down” and “explosive,” according to a source with knowledge of the workout, but no signing is necessarily imminent as the guard flew back to his home in Orlando, Fla., from Los Angeles on Sunday night.
Arenas had the Kobe Bryant experimental German Knee surgery, so physically he might be healthy, but the real question is mentally is he ready to be in LA?
