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.
