Wizards ‘Not Actively Trading’ Gilbert Arenas

by June 12, 2010

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis met with Arenas last month and has been in contact with the point guard via e-mail: “‘We had a great meeting,’ Leonsis said. ‘The conversation was about, ‘Here’s a line, and you can’t cross this line.’ The scrutiny around you has quadrupled. You need to internalize that. There are some things you can’t joke about anymore.’ ‘We’re not actively trading him,’ Leonsis continued. ‘But I would ask you to put yourself in another general manager’s shoes. He was injured for two years and suspended for a year and he’s a max [contract] player. If you were another team’s general manager, would you be trading for Gilbert Arenas right now?'”
