Re: Lakers May Sign Gilbert Arenas
Free-agent guard Gilbert Arenas conducted a workout in the Los Angeles area Sunday that was attended by Lakers officials, the three-time All-Star confirmed to SI.com via text message.
Arenas has been working out in Orlando since being cut by the Magic on Dec. 9, when they used their amnesty clause on the 30-year-old who is owed a combined $62 million over the next three seasons.
Sources said he has worked his way into shape and is feeling better than he has in years after having the same platelet-rich therapy treatment conducted on his knees that the Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez went through. Arenas also had the procedure done on his hips as a preemptive measure that is often used on athletes who, like Arenas, have a history of knee problems.
