False alarm, guys. Yesterday we posted that three-time NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas had signed a deal with the Shanghai Sharks, based on some unreliable reports from local media. Turns out he remains unsigned as of this afternoon. Whoops. Our bad. Anyway, no contract has been signed yet, but the Arenas discussion is indeed still ongoing.
Shark Fin Hoops says that false reports of the signing from local media yesterday were the result of “the news agency who made the original announcement second-guessing the presence of CCTV news cameras in Shanghai.”
It should be noted, however, that the team still hasn’t opened season ticket sales, which suggests they’re waiting for a final decision to be made on the former NBAer. The season begins soon, meaning an announcement will likely be made in the coming days. Stay tuned.
