According to ESPN, Gilbert Arenas looked “slimmed down” and “explosive” as he worked out at a season ticket holder’s house:

Arenas’ workout was held at the Bel Air home of Lakers season ticket holder and L.A. Gear sneaker mogul Steven Jackson. Jackson’s house includes a private basketball court, painted as a replica of the Lakers’ home floor at Staples Center.

Below is the original Yahoo! Sports story regarding Arenas’ workout:

In a search to find some scoring for their floundering offense, Los Angeles Lakers officials attended a private workout for guard Gilbert Arenas Sunday in Southern California, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Two sources familiar with the workout said Arenas moved well and made a positive impression, but there was no sense on how quickly – if at all – the Lakers would pursue signing him to a free-agent contract.

The Lakers’ coaching staff didn’t attend the workout, but coach Mike Brown and star Kobe Bryant have been proponents of giving Arenas a chance to help the team. Los Angeles’ backcourt, including veterans Derek Fisher, Steve Blake – and two rookies – has been a source of frustration and has had team officials investigating the market for potential additions.

Although, ESPN report that Arenas flew home to Orlando after the workout and that no signing appears to be imminent.
