Ice Cube’s Big3 league continues to shine year after year. The league has added another notable name to its roster of players, announcing this morning that former NBA guard Gilbert Arenas is joining the league for the 2019 season.
Arenas, one of the NBA’s most memorable characters over the last couple of decades, hasn’t played in the league since 2011-12 but is still just 37 years old. In 11 NBA seasons, the man known as Agent Zero averaged 20.7 PPG and 5.3 APG, earning three All-Star nods during his time with the Wizards. He also spent time with the Warriors, Magic, and Grizzlies.
Arenas was suspended indefinitely by then-commissioner David Stern in January 2010 after he admitted to bringing guns into the Verizon Center locker room. He signed a six-year, $111 million deal with Washington in July 2008, but only played 65 games with the Wizards before the end of his career.

The BIG3 will expand to 12 teams in 2018 after four teams competed last year, according to the Washington Post‘s Matt Bonesteel. Each team will consist of six players.
The BIG3, a three-on-three league which already featured former NBA players like Baron Davis, Nate Robinson, Rashard Lewis, Carlos Boozer, Stephen Jackson and Kenyon Martin has been adding to its player pool in recent weeks. Lamar Odom, Daniel Gibson, C.J. Watson, Steve Blake, Carlos Arroyo, and Royce White are among the newest additions to the BIG3.
