    I've heard that Gilbert Arenas is on his way back this week. I was thinking about the economy and the travesty that is the Washington Wizards. I'm sure unloading that 18 mil. six year deal would help them out a lot. He's only 27 and there would be 5 years left after this season. We need a pure shooter and a SG and he can defiantly shoot the ball. I would keep my eye on him if he comes back for these last games.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the expiring contract is allowed to expire.

    One broken player with only one year left on his contract for a broken down player with 5 years left. No thanks.

    No way would I take Arenas. I'm sure it's partly just me and the fact that I don't like him, but trying to put that aside, I see no reason why we would want him. He shoots around 40-42%, and is a volume shooter (shoots a ton to get his points). Add to that injuries and his terrible contract, I'd definitely pass on him.

    This has been brought up a few times already. He's played in 13 games the past two seasons and he's on a $110 million dollar contract that runs through 2014. As Bill Simmons put it: Arenas is the new C-Webb, only a healthy C-Webb made you a legitimate title contender and Arenas doesn't. There's no way Morey takes a monster gamble like this.

    I would and I wouldn't.

    I love Gilbert, he's a great player and a goof... reminds me of Artest sometimes how he just kind of lives in his own world out there.

    That being said, the guy is a walking injury and what we need more than anything is a dependable wing scorer.

    Lets see...

    Trading an broken superior talent for an less broken inferior talent?
    Trading a 1 year expiring for a 4 year expiring?

    Unless the Wizard gives us their first round pick this year or packaging McGee + Butler + future second rounders, no way in hell Morey is gonna do this deal.

    I'd do it in a heartbeat. If they add Caron Butler and their First round pick :D I'd even give them brooks so the wizards fans won't revolt.

    NO.

    Nightmare salary (size & length) as we're walking into a MASSIVE revenue drop season for the NBA and the upcoming CBA (which should make deals like Arenas' less likely).

    Arenas is the protypical Iversonian PG: freakishly unstoppable scorer, but has to dominate the ball and ice out his teammates to do so. No chance of a team offense if he is at the 1 spot. Career (consistently) 36% from deep and LOVES sending them from outside at that percentage. I don't know if he's the right guy to put next to Yao. A guy like Redd makes a LOT more sense.

    It is funny, when i opened the BBS i could only read: "Would you trade T-macs' Expr for"

    And I thought: I will trade T-mac's expr. for almost anything.

    But Arenas is one of the few players i would not trade his contract for. I would rather just let his contract expire and try to get 1 or 2 good Role players.

    Gilbert Arenas has really disappeared. When was the last time he played an NBA game?

    Considering the situation, it's a very high risk (could handcuff the franchise for a few years), very high reward situation (even bigger championship contenders).

    It does not sound like a Morey deal at all. I would agree w/ Morey.

    funny how some of yall wouldnt take arenas for tmac.. actually if take this proposal to the wiz msg board, they probably wouldnt tmac either.

    fact is, both players' stock have taken a nosedive.
