There is a lot of speculation about where Gilbert Arenas might end up after his legal mumbo jumbo is over with. The Washington Wizards are currently looking to void the rest of Arenas’ contract so they can part amicably and move on.
Arenas has two options. He can walk away from the game and pursue other ventures … or, he can sign with another team. We’ve all seen this before. Even Michael Vick got a second chance. Professional sports teams are always willing to take a chance on a talented player with legal troubles and personal issues, especially the desperate ones.
Arenas isn’t walking away from the game. He’ll be back. The only question is, with who? There are rumors circulating that the Orlando Magic are interested. But according to SI.com, general manager Otis Smith denied this claim.
My guess is that Arenas will end up with a team eventually. But it will be for much less than he was making with the Wizards. Perhaps this is the incident that needed to happen in order for him to change his ways. If Vick can do it, anyone can. Even Captain Zero.
