Yes, you read that correctly.
Former Washington Wizards star, Gilbert Arenas, may be getting another shot in the NBA with the Los Angeles Clippers. Arenas hasn’t played in an NBA game since the conclusion of the 2011-2012 season, but from the looks of it, he’ll probably be getting a training camp invite from the revamped Clippers.
I'm hearing that Gilbert Arenas has looked good in workouts this summer. The Clippers may invite him to training camp, according to sources.

Even though Gilbert Arenas’ antics set the Wizards franchise back in negative form, he certainly helped put the team back in the national spotlight. He’s best remembered for the gun incident which ultimately led to his demise, but to me, Gilbert Arenas will always be remembered for his time in Washington. Prior to the locker room situation, Arenas was one of the most beloved players in the league. Arenas’ game winning shots, ability to score an unlimited amount of points, combined with his hilarious stunts in DC, are far more pleasing than focusing on the negative side of the spectrum. Of course, getting a training camp invite doesn’t mean he’ll return to playing the same way as he did when he earned All-NBA second team honors in 2007, but hey, it’s a step forward from the Chinese Basketball Association.
There probably isn’t a bigger Gilbert Arenas fan out there than myself, so I’m definitely glad Agent 0 might be getting another shot.
