NBAGrunfeld: Arenas to be back

A day after Gilbert Arenas was sentenced to 30 days in a halfway house for bringing guns into the Washington Wizards' locker room, team president Ernie Grunfeld reaffirmed that Arenas will be back with the club next season. "We're not going to void his contract. As I've said all along, he's going to be with us," Grunfeld said. "Gilbert is a part of this organization, he's part of our team, and he will be back with us next year. I think people forget that he's still one of the best players in this league."
