Lakers Rumors: Mike Brown Called Free-Agent Gilbert Arenas

The Los Angeles Lakers were rumored to have been inquiring about free-agent Gilbert Arenas and head coach Mike Brown confirmed that report, Brian Kamenetzky of ESPN Los Angeles writes.

“We’ve made a call on [Arenas], yes,” Brown said. “We’ve called to see what his status is. That’s it.”

Still the Lakers have not planned any workouts and do no expect to bring Arenas for an evaluation. “I have not talked to him, I have not watched any tape on him. It’s really just conversation,” Brown said. “We’ve had conversation about a lot of players. There are a ton of players out there that we’ve had conversation about.”

The Lakers in need for some back-court help and Arenas could be an option to explore. Arenas has not been the same player he used to be, but can give the back-court some much needed scoring.

Although Arenas needs the ball in his hands in order to be effective, using him as a sixth man could help the Lakers greatly. There are not many players on the roster who create find his own shot besides Kobe, but Gilbert Arenas is a player who could put up points in a hurry.
