Agent Zero has been looking good in summer workouts for the Los Angeles Clippers, which could lead to an invite to the Clippers’ training camp next month, according to HOOPSWORLD‘s Adam Kennedy. I’m hearing that Gilbert Arenas has looked good in workouts this summer. The Clippers may invite him to training camp, according to sources. — Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) September 17, 2013 The days of dropping 60 points in a game are long gone, but Arenas, who will be turning 32 in January, still could provide some scoring and outside shooting off the bench. The real question is how much does Arenas have left after mostly being irrelevant the last several years following altercations with guns and dealing with injuries.

The always colorful Gilbert Arenas is looking to make a return to the association. Arenas took last year off after playing just 17 games with Memphis during the 2011-2012 campaign.
Arenas apparently has been looking great in his individual workouts and some team in L.A. might invite “agent zero” to camp, according to Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD.

I think Darth Vader would sum up Marc Gasol's full-court assist at EuroBasket 2013 by saying, "Impressive. Most impressive." During Spain's clash with Serbia in the quarter finals at EuroBasket yesterday, Gasol found himself pinned underneath the basket with the ball while a streaking Sergio Lull was making his way to the opposite side for a wide open layup. ...

According to Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy, the Los Angeles Clippers are considering sending Gilbert Arenas an invitation to training camp. Kennedy reports that Agent Zero has looked impressive during his basketball workouts, which is the reason the Clippers have been contemplating a camp invite. Arenas, only 31-years-old, should still have some gas left in his tank. […]
The Memphis Grizzlies will bring Tony Gaffney into training camp for a shot to make the roster.
The Grizzlies have 13 guaranteed contracts.
Gaffney has already signed this season with Telekom Baskets Bonn in Germany, but he was able to exercise an opt-out clause.
Gaffney played in summer league this offseason.
Leave it to the Los Angeles Clippers to bust out a belt sander when a nail file would suffice.
Despite coming off their most successful season in five years, the Clippers would have been in a bit of a pickle last season if they had not been able to scoop up Jamal Crawford for the mid-level exception. Even with Crawford on the roster, the Clips were so stretched at the off-guard spot...
The Memphis Grizzlies acquired Kosta Koufos in a trade from the Denver Nuggets, and the Grizzlies had coveted the center for over the past year.
Marc Gasol has played major minutes in the last two seasons and Koufos is expected to be the backup.
There may also be times when Koufos and Gasol play together in the Grizzlies' frontcourt.
There was a time when the Grizzlies were the sorriest franchise in all of sports.
Garish green jerseys. Bryant "Big Country" Reeves. An ignomious Playoff losing streak (three straight years getting swept out of the first round). The Allen Iverson disaster.
Those days are long behind this franchise. Now, they might very well be the envy of the sports world after...
I appreciate the heart and hustle of Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, and newcomer Tayshaun Prince. I dig their blue collar and scrappy style of play. The 2013-2014 promo’s started from the bottom, now we here story of the Grizzlies resonated with me. The promo made me care about Memphis basketball. But to be honest, I think the T-Mac cameo is really what did me in...

Spain won the EuroBasket Quarterfinals game against Slovenia in a 90-68 rout but that’s not the reason you’re here.

When it comes to the Magic and the salary cap, there are not a whole lot of worries. Gilbert Arenas' amnestied deal has kept the team above the payroll floor and the team is going to be shedding cap room this year to have some money to spend in 2014 and 2015.
That is all in the future.
The question that needs some answering immediately is what...
