Magic GM: I’m Not Thinking about Gilbert Arenas
"I have a lot of love for Gilbert, but this is something I’ve not given a whole lot of thought to," Smith said Monday afternoon. "…I don’t know where this is coming from. There is nothing in the works. No talk about it on this end or any other end."
Assuming Smith is being straight-up, that’s the way it should stay.
It’s crazy for the Magic to even consider this. Let’s start with the legal issue.
Arenas is scheduled to be sentenced March 26. He may avoid jail time. The key word is "may." Prosecutors have agreed not to ask for more than six months in jail for Arenas as part of a plea deal, but ultimately, it is the judge’s call. Superior Court Judge Robert E. Morin could impose probation, or sentence Arenas to five years in jail.
