Asked by the Memphis Commercial Appeal's Ron Tillery if he had other opportunities, Arenas replied, "Yeah, I had Atlanta early. New Jersey kept calling. But at that time I wasn't ready. Physically, I was working on trying to find a way to help my knee out. Mentally, I was trying to rediscover myself."
