Arenas: Nets Kept Calling Me

Gilbert Arenas, after signing with the Grizzlies, spoke about who else pursued him and the Nets, he said, were one of the most persistent.

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."
