Ernie speaks today
Just wanted to put something up letting folks know that Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld will address the media today in a press conference at the VC. I'll be writing on it for tomorrow's paper.
In his latest blog, posted yesterday, Gilbert Arenas said he wants Antawn Jamison here next year or he won't come back. Nothing really new there - he said very much the same thing in Los Angeles back in March. However, he also said that night that he hadn't been medically cleared to play when in fact he had been cleared the previous night. Then, one night before he made his dramatic return, he flat told me that he wasn't going to play. Oh, and he's gone back-and-forth between a willingess to take less money and his desire to get a max deal.
So, as with everything involving Arenas, take his latest words with caution.
And I don't see Gilbert's stance impacting Ernie's approach to these negotiations. The bottom line is that both players will be back if the deals works for all sides. Disclaimer: that is, unless Ernie has something up his sleeve that none of us know about.
And a word on the blog: the posts won't be as frequent in the next week or so as I plan on taking a few days to get away and unwind but things will pick up as we get into summer. The pre-draft camp, individual workouts, the draft, summer league, free agency, etc. It's a year-round deal now folks.
