The Memphis Grizzlies are on the verge of signing Gilbert Arenas, sources confirm. Arenas will sign one-year deal worth the veteran minimum.

^ Why the heck did we just not get this guy when we had the chance? He would have been great off the bench.

Just imagine...Sessions, Beasley and Arenas....and you didn't give up anything of value.

The amount of backup PF, PF/C we have, I think that's our weaker spot even though we have a lot of those players.

McRoberts? Murphy? Hill? Those aren't guys who can really produce much with any consistency. We need a guy off the bench like a Carl Landry or a Brandon Bass type player. Strong, solid base player who rebounds and can hit the mid range with consistency. Or a scoring type of PF, like Beasley who has offensive skills, active and athletic.

He may very well average 10 ppg, but I'm not sure it will be very efficient.... poor efficiency is something our bench has plenty of right now..... not sure we need anymore...

Why do people act like Arenas is do DONE? he played bad with the magic, but before he got traded he put up decent numbers. Enough to play an 8th man role on this laker bench. Obviously he's not what he was..But he can provide a little offense off the bench.

People act like Arenas is done because last time we all saw him play he looked done.

That, along with his chronic knee issues and that whole "gun confrontation with a teammate in the locker room" thing. Not difficult to understand why management passed. We'll see if they will bring in someone else.

the first team after us to look at him went ahead and signed him... I hope that's not brass looking to far into his past 3 years and not enough at what he could do for this team

Done in comparison to what did in his prime? maybe......

but when he started last year for Orlando he averaged 17ppg. That was in a system that he just didn't fit in either. This offense is actually perfect for him and I'd think he would have been capable of giving us 10-12 a game. Given how weak our bench scoring is, a consistent 12 per game would be a godsend

Not quite. Heat looked at him too. Let's not forget this is the same Memphis Grizzlies team that signed Allen Iverson.

Exactly. I think the people who say its a bad idea are comparing him to what he was. All this team needs is a spark off the bench. He can provide that. It was clear he didn't fit the system very well in Orlando. Many players struggle when traded mid season. Especially offensive players. He's obviously not the old Arenas. But I'm pretty sure the guy could score 10-12pts a game. He's not gonna play much in Memphis, so people are going to say "see, he's done". He would thrive on this team

I think the reason the lakers didn't sign him is b/c old arenas doesn't fit with kobe...arenas is someone who would jack up a 3 with 22 sec left in the shotclock. If he gets signed for vet min I would have loved him off bench to play some backup PG and backup SG.

Kinda disappointed about this. I still think the Lakers' need a spark plug off the bench to score the ball. Not only would Arenas fit that bill, but he also would have given us another capable ball handler in case Sessions or Blake had an injury. Definitely not trying to go back to the Darius Morris experiment anytime soon. Goudelock is promising, but still not someone we should be dependent on as a rookie.

Damn this guy came off a 111 million dollar contract. From there he went down hill. Enjoyed this guys ability and Hibachi routine. Shame.

GILBERT ARENAS
CHARGED FOR ILLEGAL FIREWORKS
Faces Jail Time
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NBA star Gilbert Arenas has been charged with a crime for transporting more than 100 pounds of dangerous fireworks right before the 4th of July ... and could face serious jail time, TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Arenas was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol on June 27 for speeding ... and during the bust, cops say they found more than 100 pounds of fireworks.

Arenas was arrested -- and now, we've learned he's been charged with misdemeanor possession of dangerous fireworks without a permit.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... because he had more than 100 pounds of bang bang, he faces up to 1 year in county jail and up to $10,000 in fines.

TMZ cameras were rolling during the bust -- as the LAPD bomb squad (carefully) removed the explosives from Gilbert's Ford truck.

Arenas is due in court for the matter next month.

This is just about the stupidest thing I've heard recently. The bomb squad needed to remove the fireworks from his car..... Yet a bunch of people can sell them out of little wooden shacks in grocery store parking lots?

When I was a kid I typically had 100 lbs of fireworks each summer that me and my friends would use. I remember buying 10k bricks of firecrackers once a week at allowance time.....

ALL of this ^

And i bet Gilbert recalls being able to buy fireworks by the brick as a child as well without the bomb squad needing to be involved.

If you were born before or in the mid to late 70's to early 80's i'd imagine this seems utterly bizarre and reeks of someone being made an example of due to celebrity.
