Gilbert Arenas committed to play one more season for the BIG3
Former NBA three-time All-Star Gilbert Arenas seems to be enjoying his first season with the BIG3 league. So much so, that it is now being reported that the former Most Improved Player winner intends to play on in the professional league for at least one more year.
As detailed by Leo Sepkowitz of The Athletic, Arenas actually appears to possess at a more long-term vision for his stint in the BIG3.
Arenas is committed to the league for at least one more year. Naturally, he has ideas on how it can improve. He wants to buy the Enemies, for one, but BIG3 teams aren’t individual franchises just yet. He wants to raise the competition level, too, and he’s taken that idea up the ladder, to commissioner Ice Cube himself.
Arenas seems to have been so impressed by the league and its potential for growth that he has reportedly considered becoming a team owner. At 37, Arenas’ contributions on the court is somewhat limited (he is currently averaging 6.4 points 2.4 rebounds, and 0.9 assists in just 7.9 minutes per ballgame). However, he appears to have a real desire to involve himself behind the scenes.
Gilbert Arenas is an 11-year veteran in the NBA. He holds career averages of 20.7 points (on 42.1 percent shooting), 3.9 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.6 steals, while also draining 2.0 three-pointers per contest on a 35.1-percent clip. He was quite a personality both on and off the court during his playing days, and it will definitely be hard to forget a guy like Agent Zero.
