Arenas opts out
Gilbert Arenas told me today that he filed the paperwork neccessary for opting out of the final year of his contract on Friday. The move makes Arenas an unrestricted free agent. The free agency period opens July 1.
Arenas told me that he doesn't have any plans lined up for meeting with other teams and in fact, he will be out of the country traveling from June 30 until mid-July so any teams interested in pitching an offer had been be able to track him down. As has been reported previously, the Wiz plan on retaining Arenas and Antawn Jamison and I don't really see that changing. I asked Arenas straight up what he sees happening and he said that he's 75 percent sure that he's going to be back. We'll see.
In other news, the Wizards will continue pre-draft workouts tomorrow by hosting Mario Chalmers (Kansas), Chris Douglas-Roberts (Memphis), Richard Hendrix (Alabama), Courtney Lee (Western Kentucky), Charles Rhodes (Miss State) and Rodrique Beaubois, an intriguing guard prospect from France.
