LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Lakers officials have attended a private workout for Gilbert Arenas in Southern California, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.
The report Sunday, citing anonymous sources, says the Lakers are considering the free-agent guard to boost their struggling offense.
The 30-year-old Arenas was let go by the Orlando Magic in the preseason under the league's amnesty provision. After he was traded to Orlando a year ago, Arenas made little impact in 49 games, averaging eight points. He played sparingly over the previous three seasons because of injuries and a 50-game NBA suspension for bringing a gun into the locker room.
