Looking to land an NBA job, Gilbert Arenas has scheduled an open workout in his hometown of Los Angeles for later in the week, reports Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles Daily News. Arenas has been a free agent since the Magic exercised their amnesty clause to waive him prior to the season.
It's not clear yet which teams might be on hand to watch the workout. While the Lakers have been in touch with Arenas and are thought to be considering him, they haven't decided whether they'll attend, says Teaford.
Arenas, 30, began last season with the Wizards and was eventually dealt to the Magic in a swap of oversized contracts that sent Rashard Lewis to Washington. Arenas averaged a career-low 10.8 points per game in 2010/11, and was amnestied by Orlando with three years and about $62MM remaining on his six-year contract. The Magic continue to have to pay Arenas, but his salary no longer counts against their cap.
