Do the Golden State Warriors really need another guard? Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry start (and have been playing well together of late), Nate Robinson and Klay Thompson come off the bench.

Well, they are at least looking.

Warriors consultant — and by consultant, think Consigliere — was at Gilbert Arenas’ workout in Los Angeles, reports (and the original report by Yahoo said the same thing).

The Lakers were represented there as well, it is not known if other teams were in attendance. Arenas — who was amnestied by the Magic before the season — flew back to his home in Orlando without a contract after the workout.

Barring injury, don’t expect teams to make a move to pick up Arenas soon. Most teams are looking to make bigger moves. And picking him up period doesn’t make a lot of sense for Golden State.

    Unless they plan on moving Ellis. They should still be able to get a decent haul for him and it would get Thompson more PT. Then Arenas would just be a big name, super cheap, roster filler to finish out the year. Don’t know what direction they are going to go, but I see that as one of the options…

    So the cut Lin to clear a paltry $300k of cap space, and now they suddenly need a backup Guard for a $1 million plus? smh.
