As expected, Agent Zero is opting out of the final year of his six year, $65 million deal. He’s hoping to get a big raise, but it’s hard for me to see how he gets it. There are only a couple of teams with the cap space to give him big money, and I don’t envision either of them doing it. Wizards management says they’d like to resign him. I’d like to see him resigned, too, but I hope they drive a hard bargain with him. Arenas is a player worth having on your team, but not a player worth paying any price for — if someone else offers him a giant contract, let him walk.
