After a 17-game stint with the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2011-12 season, Gilbert Arenas left the NBA and we thought that we had seen the last of Agent Zero. After all, Arenas still had plenty of money coming in, thanks to the ridiculous six-year, $111 million contract he signed in 2008. But maybe we were wrong about Gilbert being done for good.
During an interview with Bleacher Report where he discussed his involvement with a mobile music app called "Zya," Gil dropped this little nugget:
Bleacher Report: Is there anything else you see yourself pursuing down the line, in or outside the game of basketball?
Gilbert Arenas: Yeah, right now I'm just developing apps. Next summer, I'm going to train really hard and then try to make a team. I'm going to try to comeback.
B/R: What would you tell NBA teams about what you can still bring to the table?
GA: I would rather just show them. All they would have to do is give me an opportunity to perform in front of them. You know, I'm a gamer. I work hard. If I'm going to come to your team, or try out for your team, I'm going to give you my all. That's what I did [when I played]. If you take away the last few years, from my last year in Washington, and you think about my career, there was nothing but hard work. I was in the gym three or four times a day, working on my skills. If we lost a game, and I thought I played bad, I'm staying in the gym to keep shooting. That's what I did. That's what I was known for: I was a gym rat.
I made a mistake, and that's what we all do.
According to Beyond The Buzzer, Arenas named the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets as teams where he "could be a good fit." And, what do you know, the Knicks and Lakers are currently in the market for a point. Maybe Agent Zero could start ramping up the training right now and hit that court this season.
