As part of a radio interview, Gilbert Arenas said he told Nick Young that he's working out in an attempt to resurrect his NBA career.

While we'd pay good money to hear a conversation between Agent Zero and Swaggy P, Arenas hasn't played in the NBA since the 2011-12 season and likely carries quite a bit of baggage in most GM's eyes. He's most recently been playing in China and may have to settle for a return to the Chinese Basketball Association rather than a return to the NBA, so fantasy owners can feel free to look the other way here.

Gilbert Arenas and Kareem Rush were spotted at the Lakers facility.

There's not much to this news. Neither player has much of a shot to make the 15-man roster, and they might not even be part of the 20 guys invited to camp. Arenas is likely headed to play in China again this year.

Gilbert Arenas will not be making an appearance at the L.A. Clippers training camp.

There were rumors that he may receive an invite, but Arenas put those to rest Monday night. The 31-year-old guard is likely to play in China where he averaged 20.7 points in 14 games last season.

The Clippers may invite Gilbert Arenas to training camp.

Agent Zero reportedly was charged with transporting more than 100 pounds of fireworks this month and he's usually been in the news for the wrong reasons. The former All-Star played in China last year, averaging 17.8 points per game in 14 outings. Arenas is a longshot to make the team.

Gilbert Arenas has been charged with transporting more than 100 pounds of dangerous fireworks, according to TMZ.

The incident occurred back in June after he was pulled over for speeding. Arenas had a truckload of fireworks and could face up to one year in jail and up to $10,000 in fines. His next court appearance is scheduled to be next month. His six-year, $111 million deal from 2008 seems like a distant memory and his NBA career is in jeopardy.

Gilbert Arenas is working out for the Shanghai Sharks in China.

The Sharks are owned by Yao Ming. After coming to a verbal agreement with Guangdong, Arenas may now play for Shanghai instead.

Gilbert Arenas wrote on his Weibo account that he's preparing to play in China.

Yahoo! Sports reported on Tuesday that Arenas' deal in China was falling apart, but it sounds like Agent Zero taking his talents to the CBA is still a very real option. Regardless of the outcome, Arenas' NBA future looks bleak at the moment.

Gilbert Arenas, who reached a verbal agreement to sign with Guandong in China, may not be joining the team after all.

There are disagreements on a payment schedule, while Guandong is also concerned about what kind of shape Arenas might be in. They're already searching for another guard to fill the hole that not signing Arenas would leave, so it's possible that he could end up trying to get back into the NBA at some point soon. However, no NBA teams showed interest in signing him over the summer, so we doubt anything has changed on that front.

Gilbert Arenas is "close to signing" a one-year contract to play in China, a source tells Yahoo! Sports.

Arenas would play for the Guangdong Southern Tigers. He previously flirted with the idea of going to China, and with no interest in his services stateside, he'll likely join Tracy McGrady abroad next season.

Gilbert Arenas is considering playing in China to start the season, sources tell ESPN's Marc Stein.

Arenas had previously said that he was hopeful to sign with either the Lakers or Clippers, and Stein reiterates that those two teams are his "preferred destinations." However, with no offer from either team, Agent Zero is considering taking his talents to China.

Gilbert Arenas said that he is considering signing with the Lakers or Clippers for the 2012-13 season.

We're taking this with a major grain of salt. Arenas apparently told an auto mechanic in Los Angeles that both LA teams were on the table, but we've heard nothing to suggest that either club is legitimately interested. For what it's worth, ESPN's Chris Palmer reported in late May that Arenas could sign with the Lakers, but Arenas may simply be attempting to create a market for himself.

Unrestricted FA Gilbert Arenas has "slimmed down" and is "completely healthy," sources tell Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.

We heard some similarly glowing reports about Arenas' health before he signed with the Grizzlies last season, where he was a complete non-factor. He has drawn very little interest on the open market, and he may have to wait for a training camp injury to get another shot. Orlando owes him over $40 million over the next two seasons after using the amnesty clause on his contract, so he'll still be getting paid even if he doesn't find a new team.

Unrestricted free agent Gilbert Arenas could sign with the Lakers, sources tell ESPN's Chris Palmer.

Arenas and the Lakers flirted with one another this season before he ultimately signed with the Grizzlies, and with Los Angeles still needing help at point guard, Arenas' name could surface once again. He didn't exactly wow anyone with his performance in Memphis, but he would likely come on a veteran's minimum contract should the Lakers once again express interest.
