Default Should we deal for Arenas?

So we saw on Real GM that the relationship between the Wiz and Arenas is irreconcilable, in part because the guilty plea he entered is not enough for the team to void the contract.
Arenas, Wizards Could Be On Irreconcilable Ground

We have also see some discussion about where he might end up:
Orlando Could Become Gilbert's Landing Spot
Knicks Don't Dismiss Notion Of Dealing For Arenas

JeffB posted that
Steve Simmons: Calderon on the trading block

So do we get into the sweepstakes? I've never messed around with trades before, but both Hedo+Banks+Nesterovic works, as does Calderon+Banks+Nesterovic.

I personally don't think it is a good idea but would like to hear what other people think ...

No fuckin way. The guy is too selfish, plain and simple. We need a team player here that can be an upgrade on D. Can you imagine Turkoglu/Bargnani/bosh who all need the ball alot playing with a selfish ass like Arenas. Plus i doubt he'd want to be here anyway.

I really believe that Calderon will be dealt though. Which i really have mixed feelings about in all honesty.

I'm sure Bargnani could use him in relation to his off the court dealings...running pasta sauce over the border.

I don't think Bosh would stick around if Arenas shit in his shoe.

Who would even consider it?

He has huge contract. He isnt really that good. He isnt a good defender (what we would need). He is a ball hog. He seems to be really stupid and bad for team chemistry. He is injured half the time.

I wouldnt trade Banks straight up for Arenas (if that was possible).

I doubt any team would want this guy given his attitude, contract and penchant for firearms.
