Carlos Arroyo has agreed to terms with Besiktas Milangaz.

Arroyo couldn't find an opportunity he liked stateside so decided to head overseas instead. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him back in the league at some point, but he should never be a starting point guard in the NBA again.

Beat writer Michael Cunningham wrote Saturday that free agent Carlos Arroyo could be a good "stop-gap solution" to the Hawks' backup PG position.

Inexperienced second-year backup Pape Sy and point forward Tracy McGrady will be used while Kirk Hinrich is out, but the Hawks could certainly use some veteran help early in the year. As long as Jeff Teague doesn't totally face-plant, he will get all the minutes he can handle indefinitely.

Carlos Arroyo has expressed his interested in joining the Knicks.

It's unclear if the interest is mutual, but the Knicks could use a backup PG and the veteran could potentially be a consideration. Arroyo played for Miami and Boston last season, averaging 4.8 points and 2.0 assists per game.

Carlos Arroyo continued to lead Puerto Rico in their 79-74 win over Canada on Tuesday, scoring 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting with three rebounds, four assists, and a steal.

He has had a great tournament, scoring 16.5 points per game while hitting 48% of his 3-pointers. Oddly enough, Puerto Rico relies on him as their No. 1 scorer and he has done a fine job, but this isn't a career renaissance by any stretch of the imagination.

Updating a previous item, Carlos Arroyo has denied rumors that he is in negotiations with Cantu of the Italian League.

Via text message, Arroyo said, "I don't know anything about that rumor. I don't know what to say, I'm on vacation." It appears that Arroyo has his sights set on the NBA once the lockout ends.

Carlos Arroyo is negotiating with Pallacanestro Cantu of the Italian League.

Arroyo wouldn't garner much interest on the open market as a free agent in the NBA right now, and it's possible he stays overseas even if the lockout gets lifted, although that's looking unlikely to occur anytime soon.

Free agent Carlos Arroyo is not expected back with the Celtics, according to the Boston Herald.

Arroyo didn't see the floor in the playoffs with Delonte West healthy. Arroyo will get some nibbles as a No. 2 or 3 point guard elsewhere thanks to his passing ability.

Carlos Arroyo will be active for game 1 over Sasha Pavlovic for the Celtics.

Arroyo probably won't even see the court, but perhaps the time he spent with the Heat earlier this season gave him the nod over the fellow veteran Pavlovic.

Carlos Arroyo was on the floor for 25 minutes in Sunday's game against the Bucks scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting with two rebounds and six assists.

If Arroyo's seeing big minutes, it's probably because Rondo is in foul trouble or hurting. The bigger story is Rajon Rondo's poor outing. Rondo looked gassed on Sunday and might need a few games with lesser minutes to catch his breath. Arroyo isn't worth considering unless Rondo's going to miss time.

Carlos Arroyo is expected to join his new team on Tuesday for their team practice in Boston.

Arroyo's role will be to give Rajon Rondo a breather. Barring injury he won't be worth considering.

The Celtics have signed Carlos Arroyo, who was recently waived by the Heat.

The Cs didn't have a legitimate backup PG (Marquis Daniels, Nate Robinson and Delonte West have all taken turns pretending), and Arroyo should be a steadying influence for the second unit. Don't look to him for any fantasy value.

The Miami Heat have waived point guard Carlos Arroyo.

This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. He's at the bottom of an already weak point guard rotation. Arroyo will likely be replaced by Mike Bibby who should step into the starting role for the Heat.
Tue, Mar 1, 2011 05:01:00 PM

Carlos Arroyo was not with the Heat on Tuesday.

This is the nail in the coffin on the Mike Bibby deal. Arroyo has almost certainly been handed his walking papers so the Heat can add Bibby.

Carlos Arroyo received a DNP-CD Sunday afternoon for the first time this season.

This probably won't be the first either. Mario Chalmers has officially knocked Carlos Arroyo out of the lineup.
