Lakers Rumors: Gilbert Arenas could be an option for the Lakers

After Gilbert Arenas finished his short stint with the Memphis Grizzlies in 2012, the veteran point guard went unsigned in the NBA and took his game overseas to play in China. Now that Arenas is back in the states, the veteran point guard wants to make an NBA comeback and the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be on his wish list according to Dan Favale of Bleacher Report on Dec. 13:

“I guess the Lakers, with Steve Nash out. I think I could've made that squad, because that's who I was working out with before training camp started. I was playing pretty well there. But they had 15 players, so...”

With the Lakers dealing with multiple injury issues in the backcourt, Arenas wouldn’t be a terrible option for a team desperately looking for help at the point guard position.

The Lakers suffered a major blow on Thursday with Steve Blake going down with an elbow injury that will sideline him for at least six weeks. Along with Blake being out a considerable amount of time, the Lakers will also be without Steve Nash (back) and Jordan Farmar (hamstring) for a few more weeks.

Although there are no healthy point guards currently on the roster, the Lakers may not make a move. GM Mitch Kupchak said the team is considering playing it out with Kobe Bryant as the starter at the point and Xavier Henry coming off the bench.
