The Memphis Grizzlies signed Gilbert Arenas today in an effort to add to their scoring. The Grizzlies have dropped to the six spot in the West and are 18th in the league in points per game at 95.4.
Arenas was traded from the Wizards to the Magic last season before Orlando let him go before this season started. Arenas averaged 8 ppg coming off the bench. Arenas could be a decent acquisition depending on what condition he’s in, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up. Arenas looked washed up last year, I’m hesitant to say he’ll produce very much on the court coming in with only one-third of the season to go.
If he can put up numbers close to his time with the Magic, he could be useful, but for the most part, this signing might not mean very much to the Grizzlies.
