Arenas to work out for Grizzlies on Monday

Published:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Gilbert Arenas will work out Monday for the Memphis Grizzlies, who are looking to bolster their backup point guard position.

"That's the plan," Memphis coach Lionel Hollins says Sunday before a game against Washington, Arenas' former team.

Arenas ended last season with the Orlando Magic after he was traded earlier in the season for Rashard Lewis. He averaged 8.0 points in 49 games after the trade, but shot only 39 percent from the field. The Magic waived him in December through the new amnesty clause so his salary wouldn't count against the cap or luxury tax.

Arenas averaged 21.2 points and 5.4 assists during his nine-year career.

Memphis has been looking for someone to spell starting point guard Mike Conley much of the season.
