Gilbert Arenas Worked Out for the Lakers

by February 13, 2012

These are desperate times for the Los Angeles Lakers, as their aging, slow-footed backcourt continues to underwhelm (save for Kobe Bryant, and occassionaly, Andrew Goudelock.) The Lakers reportedly held a private workout with Gilbert Arenas, as they continue to search for answers. From Yahoo! Sports: “Two sources familiar with the workout said Arenas moved well and made a positive impression, but there was no sense of how quickly – if at all – the Lakers would pursue signing him to a free-agent contract. […] The Lakers’ coaching staff didn’t attend the workout, but coach Mike Brown and star Kobe Bryant have been proponents of giving Arenas a chance to help the team. Los Angeles’ backcourt, including veterans Derek Fisher, Steve Blake and two rookies, has been a source of frustration and has had team officials investigating the market for potential additions.”
