Sources: Arenas Works Out for Lakers
In a search to find some scoring for their floundering offense, Los Angeles Lakers officials attended a private workout for guard Gilbert Arenas on Sunday in Southern California, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Two sources familiar with the workout said Arenas moved well and made a positive impression, but there was no sense of how quickly – if at all – the Lakers would pursue signing him to a free-agent contract.
Arenas, 30, was let go by the Orlando Magic in the preseason under the league’s amnesty provision. Traded to the Magic a year ago, Arenas made little impact in 49 games, averaging eight points. Arenas played a total of 70 games with the Washington Wizards and Magic last season, after playing sparingly over the previous three years because of injuries and a 50-game NBA suspension for bringing a gun into the locker room.
