NBA: Arenas disputes report of ‘OK Corral’ incident

NY TIMES NEWS SERVICE , NEW YORK

He said ahead of the season that he wanted to concentrate on his court performance.

CHARGES

He pleaded no contest to misdemeanor weapons and vehicle charges in 2003 after being charged with carrying a .40 caliber handgun and driving without a license during a traffic stop in California. Shortly after, Arenas left the Golden State Warriors and signed a six-year, US$64 million contract with the Wizards.

The NBA suspended Arenas for the first game of the 2004 season because of the charge. Arenas said he had registered the weapon in Arizona, but not in California.

The Los Angeles Lakers drafted Crittenton in 2007 after he spent a year at Georgia Tech. They traded him as part of the deal that landed Pau Gasol.

The Wizards acquired Crittenton last season in a three-team trade with Memphis and New Orleans.
