Gilbert Arenas Reportedly Close to Deal in China

According to published reports, Gilbert Arenas will soon be joining Tracy McGrady in China. Arenas, 30, wasn’t able to secure an NBA contract this season and he’s now reportedly on the verge of inking a deal with the Guangdong Southern Tigers. (The CBA season ends in time for both McGrady and Arenas to get picked up by an NBA team for the Playoffs.) Per Yahoo! Sports: “Gilbert Arenas is nearing an agreement on a one-year contract with the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, a source said. […] The Chinese Basketball Association now has a long list of former NBA players, including former All-Stars Stephon Marbury and Tracy McGrady. By signing with Guangdong, Arenas will join former NBA player Yi Jianlian, who played with the Dallas Mavericks last season.”

    This is a bad idea, having Gilbert live in the land of fireworks and the region of the world that invented/discovered gun powder.

    T-Mac, Gilbert, and Starbury are not Hall of Famers.
