The Shape Of Things To Come For Gilbert Arenas


I saw this article about the possibilities for Gilbert Arenas this summer and I'll have to say it's the most in depth and comprehensive analysis i've seen yet. Most people assume we'll just give him away for one year of Eddy Curry contract, which would likely be bought out anyways, but this article examines every team so it clears up a lot of speculation.

"Arenas from the equation before the start of next season, now is the time to look at some of the important possibilities surrounding both his current team and potential suitors.

Starting with the Wizards, the fact of the matter is that they will not have a trade partner for Gilbert Arenas. As part of my research for this piece, I went through the financial commitments for every NBA team and came to the stark realization that no team has a sufficiently high amount of troubled assets on long-term contracts to make a deal that would even pass the smell test.

My first thought was the Golden State Warriors and Corey Maggette, but Arenas makes almost double what Maggette makes and has a wonderful $22 million year after Maggette’s deal expires."

The scenario that intrigued me the most was the Turkaglu, and Calderon trade. Hedo has been vocal about his disappointment with the Raptors and with the chance of Bosh not coming back, there really isn't much to go back to for these two guys. Both are quality starters and would fill positions of need (backup PG and starting SF). I know Turkalgu's contract is a bit heavy, but it's much more manageable than this $80 million cloud hanging over the Verizon center. Maybe include Livingston via a sign and trade also? Instantly upgrade their back court which also includes impressive former USC guard Demar Derozan.
