$100 Million Deal for Gilbert Arenas Almost DoneThe Washington Wizards have decided to keep their Big 3 together.

Multiple league sources told SI.com on Monday that Antawn Jamison has agreed to terms on a four-year, $44 million contract to remain with the Wizards. According to two NBA front office sources, the Wizards are also close to a new deal with unrestricted free agent Gilbert Arenas. While the deal is not yet complete, it is believed that the Wizards and Arenas will come to terms sometime this week on a contract in the six-year, $100 million range.

Jamison and Arenas will rejoin small forward Caron Butler in the Wizards lineup. Butler signed a five-year, $50 million contract with the Wizards in 2005.
