HipHollywood has exclusively learned that former NBA star Gilbert Arneas will not be training with the Los Angeles Clippers.
The professional baller worked out at the Clipper’s training facility two months ago, and looked great. Reports later surfaced that the star could be invited to the Clipper’s training camp, which would give Arenas a chance to make the active roster and pick up his NBA career.
But while on the red carpet for Laura Govan’s birthday bash, the 31-year-old told us that he will not be joining the Clippers, and that he plans on going back to China to play for the Chinese Basketball Association.
“With China, I get to go and still play and then I can get back home and spend more time with the kids. I get to be home in February and enjoy the family, I don’t need the NBA money, I have enough of it. Now it’s about spending time with the family and the kids,” Gilbert said, referring to the CBAs short season.
Arenas played in China last season with the Shanghai Sharks, averaging 20.7 points in 14 games. Before playing overseas, the 31-year-old played for the Memphis Grizzlies during their 2011-2012 season.
