Free-agent guard Gilbert Arenas exited an elevator in FedExForum with a pep in his step Monday morning following a workout for the Grizzlies.
He politely declined to comment when approached by a reporter.
“Hope to get to know you soon,” Arenas said, smiling, before he walked across the street to the Westin Hotel.
The Grizzlies, meanwhile, had already spent quality time with Arenas and now are on the verge of signing the 10-year veteran to a deal for the rest of this season, according to sources close to the process.
