Gilbert Opting Out

Gilbert Arenas says he’ll opt out of his contract after the 2007-2008 season in search of more money, though he’s hoping to get that money from the Wizards rather than go elsewhere. At his current salary, Agent Zero’s a fantastic bargain, but he also strikes me as the kind of guy (tons of scoring, but not terrible efficient and not much as a rebounder or defender) who’s poised to get overpaid by someone as a free agent.
