Wizards Vs. Grizzlies: Will Former Washington Star Gilbert Arenas Sign With Memphis?

As timing would have it, the Washington Wizards are in town Sunday evening to face the Memphis Grizzlies, and a former Washington star may be on the verge of signing with Sunday night's opponent. Via Michael Lee of the Washington Post:

The Memphis Grizzlies' interest in possibly adding Gilbert Arenas is genuine, as the team plans to hold a private workout on Monday with the former Wizard. Arenas is actually in Memphis as the Wizards are set to take on the Grizzlies on Sunday at FedEx Forum - and staying at the same hotel as his former team.

Arenas worked out with the Los Angeles Lakers a month ago, but was not signed by the team. If Memphis were to sign the veteran guard, he would serve as a backup to Mike Conley for the Grizzlies.
