Grizzlies Memphis signs Gilbert Arenas

Quote:
Memphis, TN (Sports Network) - The Memphis Grizzlies signed free agent guard Gilbert Arenas on Tuesday.

Arenas split time last season between the Washington Wizards and Orlando Magic, averaging 10.8 points, 3.9 assists and 2.7 rebounds through 70 games.

But the three-time All-Star was waived last December when Orlando designated him as its amnesty player.

The amnesty clause allows each team to waive one of its player contracts that was in effect prior to the 2011-12 season and have 100 percent of the player's salary removed from the team's salary for salary cap and tax purposes.

A former second-round draft choice by the Golden State Warriors in 2001, Arenas has played in 535 career games with Golden State, Washington and Orlando. He has career averages of 21.2 points, 5.4 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals a game.

He's signed as primarily a backup point guard.

Risk free move. If he works out, then the Grizz are that much more dangerous, if not then the Grizz are where they are currently, which is still a very dangerous team capable of beating anyone in the West

i wouldn't say risk free.. Gilbert has a tendency to bring the dumbassiness out of people around him.

He could be cut faster than he was signed. Pretty risk free. Gilbert could be a good addition in a backup role. MEM is dangerous regardless.
