According to Michael Lee, the NBA will announce later today that Gilbert Arenas has been suspended for the rest of the NBA season.

Lee reports that Arenas was actually the one to suggest his punishment, and Stern agreed with Arenas' judgement. The NBA Players Association doesn't plan on fighting the decision.

At the end of the day, this is pretty much what was expected. I don't really have a problem with it and I'm personally happy that Arenas wasn't suspended for any longer. It speaks volumes that Arenas went ahead and suggested this punishment. Perhaps Stern told Arenas to do this as a way to see how remorseful he was. Perhaps Arenas legitimately worried he'd be suspended for longer. Either way, it gives you an idea how seriously everyone now takes this.

We'll have much more as it happens here.

Not sure, Stern did say that the contract voiding is up to the team.

I guess Arenas knew he should just bite the bullet on this one.

Ouch... that's what? ~$10M he's giving up?

$10M for a gun charge is pretty steep, and far more than Delonte will have to pay. But I bet you some dumbass will still come out and say he got off easy and deserves worse.

they probably figure he's going to get some time of jail time or home confinement from the judge so may as well get this over with now so he can start anew next season

he has a prior arrest on a gun charge, plus it's a felony charge this time, those two things combined change everything

I don't see any way that the Wiz would be paying him for this suspension.

It's his second offense, plus it happened in D.C.

No.... I'm not saying it's unwarranted or too harsh a punishment. What I'm saying is there will still be people out there saying he deserves worse, and got off easy.

The suspension is without pay. The contract voiding issue is separate, and I am sure that GA is going to try like hell to stay out of jail. If he ends up in jail, that will add a lot of weight to voiding things.

As expected. It just amazes me the lack of judgment on some of these players. He has nearly a 100 mil on the line and he already had previous gun charges.

Some good points on why he agreed to take the rest of the season suspension. Has Gilbert attempted to do any commercials about guns, show up at events, maybe do some speaking at schools or places? Kinda like acknowledging what he did was wrong but dont make the same mistakes he did. One of those campaign runs if you call it that. Go on radios whatever.
